National Engineering Week 2002:
Engineering – Anything’s Possible

National Engineering Week (NEW), March 2-10, is an annual opportunity to highlight not just engineering, but also science, math and technology. Since its inception in 1992, National Engineering Week (NEW) has been an annual event.

Events during this week raise awareness of the important role engineering plays in the lives of Canadians. NEW celebrates engineering achievements and highlights the various academic and career opportunities available to Canadians.

The Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta (APEGGA) along with other Canadian provincial and territorial associations will host over 500 events and activities in 2002 to help elementary, junior and senior high school students discover the exciting worlds of science and math.

National Engineers Week is filled with opportunities to share engineering, math and science among our nation's youth and general public. Activities across the country include visiting classrooms, organizing tours of interesting local engineering projects, hosting an “engineer for the day”, developing engineering contest, etc.

APEGGA is responsible for regulating the practice of engineering, geology and geophysics in Alberta. APEGGA’s authority is derived from The Engineering, Geological and Geophysical Professions (EGGP) Act, a statute of the province of Alberta. Under the EGGP Act, licensure with APEGGA is required to practice engineering, geology or geophysics Alberta. APEGGA has served Albertans since 1920, now with over 36,000 members.
