Events and Services
The CFES Congress is the annual general meeting of all CFES member schools. This meeting lasts a week and is an opportunity to network with members from other schools, attend leadership development sessions, and attend sessions given by industry professionals.
CEC allows students to showcase their engineering skills at a very high level and challenging competition. Students compete in difference categories, such as communication, design challenges, and debate and are judged based on their ideas and presentation skills. This event also features judges from members of engineering companies providing them with a networking opportunity.
Project Magazine (ProMag) is a magazine produced by a CFES member school twice a year. This magazine is comprised of submitted articles from students across the country, and is sent out to all the member schools. Each issue has a theme that can range from current issues in engineering as well as academic and worldwide social issues.
CE courses allow for engineering students to acquire knowledge about a topic that is beyond the basic engineering curriculum. These courses have a variety of topics ranging from Engineering and Sport to Professional Development seminars. These courses are open to all engineering students at member societies, and provide a great way to explore a new city.
The National Conference on Women in Engineering is a conference aimed at different issues faced by women in the engineering world, and recently has been expanded to include general diversity issues in engineering. This conference has sessions run by industry professionals, as well as workshops about outreach.
A recent addition to the CFES, the CFES Student Development Program is the first of it’s kind in the country. The program is designed to provide students with professional development opportunities and resources through a brand new learning method, focusing on peer to peer education and real life practice.
