    What is engineering and computer science anyway?

    Interested in making an impact in health and medical advances, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity or climate change and environmental sciences, but not sure where to start?

    Engineers don’t just build bridges — they become consultants, project managers and designers who solve problems that affect societies and individuals every day. However, Canada will have a shortage of 100,000 engineers by 2025.

    Historically, women have been underrepresented in engineering and computer science, but the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science is committed to breaking down the barriers that prevent young women from seeing themselves as scientists and engineers and pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

    Learn about the diversity of engineering and computer science as disciplines and explore their potential career options at this networking event.

    Registration opens at 9:30 a.m. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., you’ll have an opportunity to hear from current students during a panel discussion and meet with them over lunch. There will also be occasions to network with alums and young professionals, as well as tour the school’s state-of-the-art lab facilities.

    This free event is open to women in any CEGEP level. Registration is mandatory and participants will receive a free lunch during the event.
