The International Engineering Competition (IEC) brings together the brightest students from all across Canada, the United States, and Europe through partnerships with NAESC and BEST to compete in consulting and design. The competitions challenge each participant to solve up-to-date problems engineers have to face by teamwork, creativity, and cleverness.

IEC is a highly selective competition. Successful applicants generally have demonstrated a strong academic performance or success in other engineering-related competitions. They have acquired technical skills through past projects or employment, and are familiar with effective consulting practices. IEC presents the unique opportunity to network with potential employers, compete against other high achieving participants, and solve real-life problems engineers continuously face.

"There’s nothing I believe in more strongly than getting young people interested in science and engineering, for a better tomorrow, for all humankind.”
