Student Outreach

Today's engineering students are the future of our industry. That's why ACEC has launched an outreach campaign called Engineering Legacies, which focuses on educating students about Canada's consulting engineering industry. Together with our Member Organizations, we have spoken to more than 5,000 students through presentations and career fairs, outlining the benefits of working in the profession today. To learn more about Engineering Legacies, and consulting engineering in general, visit

ACEC is proud to sponsor two important annual student events: the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students Congress, and the Canadian Engineering Competitions (CEC). Both events are organized through the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students (CFES), and hosted by a university.

Zenon Kripki, CFES Corporate Relations Commissioner and ACEC President and CEO John Gamble in Ottawa; Québec Young Profesional volunteers at the 2016 Canadian Engineering Competition in Montreal; Alberta Young Professional volunteers at the Engineering Legacies booth at the 2016 CFES Congress in Calgary. 

The Congress and the CEC bring together engineering students from universities across the country. Both events provide opportunities for education and networking; the CEC also gives students the chance to compete in various professional categories, such as design, consulting, presentation, and parliamentary debate. (ACEC, which sponsors the main event, is often asked to judge the debates.)
