Why Become a Professional?
The Canadian Council of Professional Engineers has developed a site that
addresses that question. Although it has been developed with engineers
in mind the message is also clear for geoscience students. Click
Courses and seminars are offered in your 4th year
to provide you with a better understanding of the professions, the APEGGA
Code of Ethics and and your future responsibilities as a professional.
There is also a special workshop and luncheon held in conjunction with
the Ring Ceremonies for graduating students that will introduce you to
your future role and responsibilities.
