Engineers, geologists and geophysicists ... they create, design, develop, build, enhance and explore. Their contributions have a major impact on our economy and quality of life. From the field to the lab, from the earth's core to outer space - anything's possible!

APEGGA and its 35,000 members are committed to promoting the role science and technology plays in the lives of Albertans. In Alberta, APEGGA organizes and sponsors events to promote the professions of engineering and geoscience as interesting and rewarding careers, and to generate awareness of its members' contributions to Alberta's economy.
