Message from our President
"As the 13th President of the Engineering Society I am pleased to welcome you to another year of engineering at UBCO. This is an unusual time for all of us. Whether this is your first year in engineering or you are a returning student, we are all facing new challenges as we continue to navigate a world changed by COVID-19. I hope you find that the Engineering Society helps provide you with the sense of community we all need right now - I know our intent as the Society leaders is to create it. For many of us, this isn’t an easy time, but many of the attributes needed to get through an engineering degree are similar to those tested by the global pandemic situation. Courage, perseverance, and adaptability are hallmarks of our chosen future profession; and we are delighted to welcome you to a society that values these qualities and seeks to support you on your journey as an engineering student. This year our Society looks forward to providing you with opportunities to connect with other engineering students, and continue to offer our services even if we can’t do it in person. I genuinely wish you all the best this year, and I look forward to seeing you all back on campus in the future!"
