CEC 2016
When: March 2- 5, 2017
Host: University of Calgary

Each year, the Canadian Engineering Competition (CEC) brings together 150 of the most innovative and creative engineering undergraduate students from across the nation to compete against each other in one of six categories, ranging from design, consulting, presentation and debate. Each competition category at CEC challenges its participants to expand their frame of reference and to identify solutions to problems experienced by our profession.


Established in 1985, CEC is a highly selective competition that is organized by universities that are a part of Canadian Federation of Engineering Students. Those invited must first best their peers at their own intra-university competition, and then must achieve a top performance at their respective regional competition (Atlantic Region, Quebec, Ontario, and Western Region).
In order to get involved in the CEC, McGill students must first best the local McGill Engineering Competition, followed by the provincial Quebec Engineering Competition, at which point they're qualified to enter the CEC!
