Engineering for Humanity
The Schulich School of Engineering invites students in Grade 12 to join us to learn about Engineering for Humanity! Engineers develop technologies that connect people and communities, protect society from natural and unnatural disasters, turn waste into fuel, make cancer detection easier and more accurate, and much more. With the world’s challenges becoming more and more complex, engineers are required to be more innovative, collaborative and empathetic than ever before.
The Engineering for Humanity event series explores how engineering solutions are developed here and around the world, and how they are impacting our society and improving lives. We are proud to showcase the excellent work of our female engineers and engineering students. You will also have the opportunity to tour research and undergraduate design labs, as well as visit the Maker Multiplex. You will interact with our current students to learn about their perspectives including how internship, student clubs, and global and experiential learning opportunities are enriching their experience and shaping their goals.

Women in Engineering Panel
Are you interested in learning more about life as an engineering student? Hear from a variety of current students during this women in engineering panel and discussion. The panel will cover a variety of topics including student life and the Schulich experience.
Participants can attend this panel in person, or watch the panel online.
Designing a Sustainable Future
Discover the world of renewable energy, sustainability, and international development in engineering! You will hear from engineers who are developing innovative power converter circuits for wind, solar and hydro sources for the developing world. This work includes a project funded by Grand Challenges Canada, where the team developed a power monitoring device for village homes to boil water and cook food overnight, using power that would otherwise be lost.
Women in Aerospace Engineering
Join us for a conversation with Laura Lucier, a Schulich School of Engineering Alumna, and the chief of Robotics Operations at NASA's Johnson Space Center! Laura will discuss her childhood dream of becoming an astronaut, her journey to certification as a robotics flight controller, and what it’s like to work in Mission Control. Laura will share stories of perseverance and NASA's credo for performing your best under pressure.
