Conference has been a long-standing tradition at the University of Saskatchewan. This year
The conference is focused on providing high school and university-aged students an opportunity to learn about the first-hand experiences from Engineers from minority groups. Rosanah Santos, a Professional Engineer will be speaking about her career path and experiences as a woman in engineering. David Michealson will speak about his journey through the engineering industry, academia, and experiences as a professor and as an Indigenous person in Engineering. We hope that these perspectives from inspirational speakers might spark an interest in Engineering for students who may not have considered this profession before.
These presentations will be followed by technical speakers provided by The University of Saskatchewan Nanotechnology Student Council, and a presenter provided by the Power and Energy Systems IEEE Student Chapter for any students interested in learning more about the many career opportunities within engineering.
Date: March 12, 1-3pm
