In honour of the National Engineering Month, Niagara College will be hosting “Engineering Shaping Our World: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow“; an event to highlight the ways in which engineering shapes the world around us, the different career paths in engineering, and to encourage students to get involved in this exciting field of study.
With Discovery Channel celebrity Neil Walker, as the guest speaker, and representatives from the PEO, OACETT and other engineering associations, this event will be a great learning and networking opportunity for students and industry professionals:
Engineering technology is an extraordinarily broad and arguably fascinating field, but its practice takes place largely outside the public eye. Unlike law, medicine, science, finance, policing, journalism, politics, midwifery, fishing, ice-road trucking and cookery, engineering is without colourful recognizable personas. This makes it hard for an outsider to understand what lives in engineering are like.
Neil Walker is a mechanical engineer and a professor at Niagara College with a varied career. By recounting his rambles through engineering, Neil will try to put an essentially human–if unreasonably hairy–face to his chosen profession.
The event is open to the community and will be taking place March 21st from 6:30pm-9:30pm at the Niagara College Welland Campus inside “The Core”.
Food and refreshments are included along with a chance to win awesome door prizes!
The event is free, but RSVP is required to reserve space. Please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
