As you may know, a University Degree in Engineering is only the first step in becoming a Professional Engineer in Manitoba. If you are wondering how to continue the process and go from Engineer-in-Training to Professional Engineer come out for the information session on becoming a P.Eng. While the process is not complicated, it can be helpful to have an experienced voice to explain how things work and share tips learned along the way. Students, recent graduates and professionals of all ranges of experience are welcome. IEEE professionals and APEGM executives will explain the steps that APEGM uses to guide EITs into their professional careers. This will include discussion of work experience, reference letters, volunteering, professional development, and what happens once you’re ready to become a Professional Engineer. Food and beverages will be served!


Free. BBQ and refreshments provided.
