APEGA and its members recognize that engineering, science and technology are important to Canada’s future. To succeed in the future and compete in world markets, we need to employ science and technology today and provide an ongoing supply of qualified science professionals.
To this end, the Association and its members are working with Alberta universities, industry and government to help ensure that the value of science and technology, and the impact of engineering, geology and geophysics on the lives of Albertans, is understood and appreciated.
By bringing attention to its professions through a variety of programs and activities, APEGA encourages and nurtures an interest in engineering, science, math and technology in students and the general public.
Careers in engineering, geology and geophysics and the importance of science, math and technology are all promoted through the Outreach program. Activities are school and community related.
ENG. & GEO. MONTH
National Engineering & Geoscience Month (NEGM) is an annual opportunity to highlight not just engineering and geoscience but science, math and technology. Science Olympics and Provincial School Challenge are a few of the fun school activities.
By bringing attention to its professions through a variety of programs and activities, the Association encourages and nurtures an interest in engineering, science, math and technology in students and the general public.
AND TECHNOLOGY WEEK
Individuals and organizations across the province hold science and technology-related activities throughout the week. APEGA is an official sponsor of Alberta’s 2006 Science and Technology Week.
