Global Engineering Certificate Information Session

EWB MUN is excited to announce that MUN is the first university in Canada to offer the Global Engineering Certificate!

The Global Engineering Certificate is part of EWB Canada’s Global Engineering Curriculum venture. The certificate recognizes the development of an awareness of globalization and its impact on engineering practice, capability of practicing leadership and interdisciplinary skills, competency in exploring complex societal issues and an ability to apply technical skills in a global context.

There is no cost or time limit to complete this certificate and Engineers Without Borders Canada has staff to support students throughout the process.

On Wednesday, October 22nd, EWB will hold an information session about the new Global Engineering Certificate EWB is offering in partnership with the Faculty of Engineering! It will take place in EN 2040 from 1-2pm. All faculty and students are invited to attend! If you are unable to attend but are interested in finding out more, please email mun@ewb.ca

Happy Tuesday!

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you all had a great midterm break.  At tonight’s meeting our returned JF, Erin, will be doing an info session.  This is a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in the program to pick her brain!

Also, keep an eye out over the next week for applications to attend National Conference! We’re just waiting to hear back on final numbers for subsidies and available spots, but we’ll be releasing the details as soon as we get them.
