Future students (CEGEP/grades 11 & 12)


During the Women in Engineering Webinars, panelists, including select academic advisors from the Faculty of Engineering, university admissions advisors, professors, engineering alumni, industry representatives and current female engineering students make presentations about issues related to the admission/application process, as well as support and professional development of female students in the Faculty, covering experiences both inside and outside the classroom. The Women in Engineering Spring Webinar (March/April) follows a similar format to the Fall webinar, but also allows prospective students to receive answers to questions that could help finalize their decision to attend McGill Engineering.

Women in Engineering Reception

The Faculty’s Women in Engineering Reception in the spring offers an opportunity for newly admitted engineering female students and their parents to meet representatives of the Faculty, including current students, professors, academic advisors, student groups, design teams, etc. to learn more about the Faculty programs and to gain insight on the support systems and services available to female students within the Faculty of Engineering.

Women in Engineering 2018 Reception

CEGEP Caravans

In tandem with the University’s central recruitment efforts, select engineering academic advisors, POWE student representatives and professors participate in the McGill CEGEP Caravans. These McGill-dedicated visits to targeted Montreal CEGEPS (French and English) promote our engineering programs, services and opportunities to CEGEP student and counsellors. In total, ten visits are made, beginning in September and ending in mid-February. Currently, they visit the following CEPEPs: Marianopolis, Vanier, Champlain, Dawson, André-Grasset, Bois-de-Boulogne, Jean-de-Brébeuf, John Abbott, Edouard-Montpetit, and Collège Maisonneuve. Please contact the CEGEP counsellor for additional information.

POWE Shadow Days

POWE Shadow Days welcome girls in high school and CEGEP to McGill Engineering and gives them the opportunity to live the Engineering student life for a day with POWE student members.

McGill Open House

McGill Open House usually takes place during one Sunday in October and is an opportunity for prospective students and their families to learn what McGill University and the Faculty of Engineering have to offer with regards to undergraduate programs, graduate programs, student services and support, student clubs, organizations, and design teams, teaching and research, exchange opportunities, etc. Parents and students can join in select research lab and facilities tours, as well as engage with current students, professors, staff, and engineering alumni.

Meet an alumna

Mary-Jean Eastman

Mary-Jean Eastman
School of Architecture

In their education, North American women are still told too often that they are not good at math and science.  By the time they get to high school too few consider a career in engineering. Meet Mary-Jean

Meet a grad student

Mehrnoosh Azodi

Environmental Engineering

McGill was recommended by my previous supervisor at Sharif University of Technology in Iran where I did a bachelor’s in chemical engineering. He referred to McGill as one of the leading universities in research. Meet Mehrnoosh


Meet an undergrad student
