National Engineering Month

Explore engineering in March!

National Engineering Month is Canada’s largest celebration of engineering. The month features fun and inspiring events that will spark an interest in the next generation of engineers. Every year in March, thousands of youth, parents, teachers, engineering students, and engineers-in-training interact with engineers and others who volunteer their time to host events that display their passion, commitment, and action towards making the world a better place. In some provinces, you’ll find geoscientists joining in the celebration as part of National Engineering and Geoscience Month.


Presented by Engineers Canada, National Engineering Month revolves around the theme, “There’s a place for you in engineering,” which celebrates the diversity of thought, opportunities, and people that make up the engineering profession and whose passion and commitment drive tangible efforts that improve our world. National Engineering Month demonstrates how a career in engineering can open doors. It presents limitless possibilities to not only make things, but make things better. To drive innovation and progress. To add resiliency and sustainability. To bring people together. To inspire. To take what’s been done and make it better. To improve how we live, how we get around, how we connect.  

Join the celebrations or follow along during the month on social media using the hashtags #NEM2024 or #NEGM2024.

Send us details of your event, and we’ll add it to the list on our website of public events happening from coast to coast to coast in March 2024. This can bring more visibility to your event and to your organization’s outreach efforts, and can increase participation in your outreach activities. It will also demonstrate that you are part of a larger, national celebration of engineering with like-minded organizations across the country.
