The McGill Engineering Competition

The McGill Engineering Competition (MEC) is an annual interdisciplinary event providing all McGill engineering students the opportunity to test their skills in varying competitions. The goal of MEC is to foster relationships between students by providing a setting for professional engineering practice as well as networking opportunities.


MEC is the qualifying competition for representing McGill at the provincial level in the Quebec Engineering Competition, where competitors will have the chance to move on to the Canadian Engineering Competition to compete at the national level. MEC takes place over a weekend during the Fall semester where over 120 students compete in categories designed to challenge students in varying aspects of engineering. In addition, MEC also hosts MEC Lite, a condensed version of the competition, in the Winter semester.



You will be challenged to make an industry-quality software to solve a given problem. The software will be presented to the judges for evaluation.


Registration opens several weeks before the competition is scheduled to take place each year. For up to date information on registration and scheduling visit the MEC Facebook page or website.


Each year MEC is organized and run by student committees selected at the beginning of the Winter semester. If you're interested in joining the MEC organizing committee keep an eye out for applications on the EUS Pipeline!
