National Engineering Month (NEM) is held every March of every year throughout Canada to celebrate excellence in engineering. It is an opportunity for youth to learn about many disciplines of engineering and see how their skills and interests fit within the profession. The month also serves to teach youth the skills they need to succeed in the profession. NEM hopes to show that students are the future of the profession and that there is a growing need for engineers within Canada. Ultimately the goal of the month is to show youth the possibilities and opportunities that they will have as a professional engineer.
