National Engineering Week (NEW) is a national celebration of engineering excellence. APEGGA is dedicated to reaching out to young Canadians and showing them engineering is an exciting, fun and rewarding career choice.|
National Engineering Week (NEW) has been steadily gaining popularity since it first began in 1992.
Initiated by the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers (CCPE) as a means of raising 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.
APEGGA, along with other provincial and territorial associations will host various events and activities in 2002 to help elementary, junior and senior high school students discover the exciting worlds of science and math, and encourage them to consider careers in engineering and the geosciences.
