Students to Learn About a Future for Women in Engineering

High school students, particular girls, will learn about what a career as an engineer has in store for them.

The University of Manitoba is hosting a talk on Wednesday, November 14 called, “Engineering: An Education for Life.” A panel discussion with female engineering professionals and current engineering students will follow the WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) presentation.

“The engineering profession offers so many exciting opportunities to make a difference in the world,” said Kathryn Atamanchuk, former Standard Aero employee and now engineer-in-residence at the Faculty of Engineering. “I am always thrilled to have the chance to speak to bright young women about engineering.”

Engineering grad-turned-Manitoba Hydro employee Lindsay Melvin will deliver a public presentation on the potential women have in the engineering field later in the afternoon.
