National Engineering Month is a nation-wide event designed to introduce the engineering profession to young people and celebrate excellence in it.
    • “Raising awareness in young people – girls and boys – and the general public about the multiple facets of the engineering profession is an important issue for the next generation of engineers. By doing so, we hope to show them how engineers contribute to the socio-economic development of Québec and rouse interest in young people who are inspired by innovation and technology," stated the President of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec, Maud Cohen, Eng.

Featuring the slogan "A profession. A commitment. A vision.", this campaign is designed to make the general public aware of the various facets of the engineering profession, an objective that is perfectly in line with the mission of National Engineering Month.
