ACEC supports Canada’s engineering students at 2014 Canadian Engineering Competition
More than 150 of the best and brightest engineering students from 27 universities across Canada competed in the 2014 Canadian Engineering Competition (CEC), March 13-16 at Western University in London, Ontario. Students competed in seven different competitions for the chance to advance to the 2nd annual International Engineering Competition.
Established in 1985, the CEC brings together 150 of the country’s most innovative and creative undergraduate engineering students. Competitions take place across seven categories: Junior Design, Innovative Design, Senior Design, Consulting, Debate, Communications, and Re-Engineering. Within each category, participants are challenged “to expand their frame of reference and to identify solutions to problems experienced by our profession.”
The competition provides an excellent opportunity for industry participation and support. A representative of ACEC member firm AECOM assisted at the CEC career fair. Stephanie Dalo, an engineering intern at AECOM in London, was on hand to provide students with information about ACEC and consulting engineering as a career choice. ACEC’s career fair booth featured the Engineering Legacies website, a resource geared to helping students discover consulting engineering as a career, preparing them for their career and finding a job.
ACEC President John Gamble and Martin Savard, ACEC’s Member Services Coordinator, participated as judges for the extemporaneous debate competition.
