Indeed, we were the only McGill team who made it to the podiums among all categories at the CEC.

Since 1985, the Canadian Engineering Competition (CEC) has brought together 200 of the country’s brightest engineering students to compete in one of eight categories, ranging from consulting to programming. Each competition category at CEC challenges its participants to expand their frame of reference and develop unique solutions to problems experienced in the engineering industry. In partnership with the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students, the University of New Brunswick will host the 37th Canadian Engineering Competition, breaking new ground and persevering through unexpected circumstances to host CEC online for the first time in the history of the competition.
