Engineering and Geoscience Week Proclaimed

Released on March 4, 2019

The week of March 3-9, 2019, has been proclaimed as Engineering and Geoscience Week by the Government of Saskatchewan.  The week recognizes the significant contributions that members of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) make in our province.

“Whether it is designing new transportation infrastructure to support our exports getting to market or new innovative technology to make our roads safer for commuters, engineers and geoscientists play an important role,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Lori Carr said.  “The work of these professional men and women makes a mark in sectors across Saskatchewan including agriculture, construction, environment, forestry, manufacturing, mining, utilities, transportation and resources.”

APEGS is the governing body responsible for regulating the practice of engineering and geoscience professionals in the province.

APEGS wants more Saskatchewan students to know about engineering and geoscience as career options, has purchased a movie called Dream Big: Engineering Our World, which will be circulated to all schools in Saskatchewan with the assistance of the Ministry of Education.

Professional engineers and geoscientists are introducing the movie in schools across the province this week to celebrate how engineers improve lives for people by being creative and asking themselves what can happen if you dream big.

“Meeting professional engineers or professional geoscientists in person, watching Dream Big and asking questions will help students discover how inspiring it is to work in these professions,” APEGS President Stormy Holmes said.  “Like the professionals in Dream Big, our members practice engineering and geoscience in a safe, competent and ethical manner every day to ensure public safety.”

Engineering and Geoscience Week coincides with National Engineering and Geoscience Month, Canada’s biggest celebration of engineering and geoscience.
