What is TechFair?

The McGill University Engineering and Technology Career Fair or “TechFair” is a collaborative effort combining the resources and expertise of the Engineering Career Centre (ECC), the Engineering Undergraduate Society (EUS) and the Computer Science Undergraduate Society (CSUS). Created in the year 2000, the TechFair aims to connect McGill students in Engineering, Computer Science and Physical Sciences with the top employers in the industry for the purposes of exploring career and/or internship opportunities.

The Winter 2023 event is a *HYBRID* event (virtual & in-person). The virtual career fair will use the Eventus platform, and the in-person event will be held at New Residence Hall (3625 Park Ave).
