ENGG Week 2015

Since 1992, National Engineering Month has been used as an opportunity to raise public awareness of the importance of engineering and technology in our daily lives and to encourage young people to consider careers in engineering and technology. This is done throughout Canada and takes the form of volunteer-organized events.

The RESS will be hosting multiple events and activities during the week of March 2nd to bolster inner faculty pride through feats of physical toughness, engineering spirit, practical knowledge, and of course taking time to enjoy the engineer’s favourite BEvERage.
