The University Engineering Award is available to students in an electrical, computer, mechanical, chemical, or environmental engineering program. The award recipients will receive priority consideration for a developmental work term following successful completion of the second year. The award is to be granted to a member of an employment equity target group, which includes women, First Peoples, people who are disabled, and people who are visible minorities. The award is given to a student who has completed one year and is currently in the second year of his or her program, and who is of good academic standing, with a minimum B average. (For Lakehead University only, the award recipient will be in the third year technology program and continuing in the engineering degree program.) The award requires strong oral and written communication skills, and demonstrated leadership skills. The student should be involved in extra-curricular activities. The candidate must be legally eligible to work in Canada upon graduation.
