Canadian Graduate Engineering Consortium

How do the best minds in engineering explore where to develop their research interests?

CGEC

The Canadian Graduate Engineering Consortium features Queen's Engineering, along with five other leading Canadian engineering schools. Students can learn about graduate studies in engineering at some of the world's leading schools -- including Queen's -- in intensive one-day sessions that provide clear information on grad studies and connects students directly to institutions and researchers.

The 2020 virtual conference will be held online on October 7, with a virtual conference platform gathering undergraduate engineering students from coast to coast in one high-tech event.

Meet with admissions experts, faculty and students from Canada’s top graduate engineering schools.

  • Keynote address with Joel Atwater, Engineer, Program Manager, and entrepreneur leading portfolio management at Google Research
  • Special presentations and Q&As with representatives of Canada’s leading engineering schools
  • Grad student panels, including Queen’s students from multiple disciplines:
1:00-1:30 p.m. Thomas Sears Electrical and Computer Engineering Vanier Scholar - project title: "Distributed Simultaneous Localization and Mapping for Collaborative Guidance, Navigation, and Control of Multiple Mobile Robots on Mars."
1:30-2:00 p.m. Erin Lee Mechanical and Materials Engineering Vanier Scholar - project title: Mapping the relationships between morphology and function in the human shoulder: an interdisciplinary approach for understanding human evolution and injury.
