Advancing Professions and Professionals

Engineering and geoscience make great career choices!

Starting with their imaginations, engineers solve practical problems with the tools of math, science, and technology. Part scientist, part technician, and part inventor – an engineer designs and produces things. Engineers apply existing technology to real-world problems in new ways – or they invent new technologies that no one has thought of before. Our complex world depends on machines and systems to provide food, shelter, water, and energy; to move people and good from place to place; and make communication possible. Not only do engineers develop these systems, they keep them running and work to make them better.

Girl Power

It doesn’t matter what’s printed on a birth certificate or if you’re well out of girlhood, girl power extends beyond the traditional thinking of the term.

At Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba, we know that diversity within our fields is an integral piece in changing the world. We also know that changing the world with lasting impact requires dedication, heart, and the different skills each one of us brings to the table.

Girl power is an equation meant to inspire the people who might take this on. It exists at the heart of the problem and offers a solution – empowerment in the pursuit of a career in engineering and geoscience to help solve the complex problems that our world faces.

Watch the video below to learn how to get involved.

Girl Power is the Answer

Our Girl Power campaign calls on girls to consider careers in engineering and geoscience by highlighting the meaningful and inspiring work of four Manitoba women.

Help us share this initiative by directing the high school students in your life to the Girl Power Campaign Website:

Girls go the distance in engineering and geoscience. The time is now to be the force that drives the world forward.

What is Engineering?

Engineers serve people and communities. Engineers problem-solve and design for: safe water supply, reliable power, renewable energy, energy-efficient buildings, and vehicles, sustainable food sources, cures and treatments for cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, protection of the environment, safe transportation, and to help us communicate, create and connect… and much more.

What is Geoscience?

Geoscientists promote effective land-use policies needed for sustainable management of earth resources, protect water resources essential for our survival, locate needed minerals, identify and reduce risks associated wit natural hazards like volcano eruptions, earthquakes, floods, and landslides. Geoscientists make the Earth a living laboratory. If you’re interested in understanding and protecting the Earth and its resources, geoscience might be the right career for you.

With competitive salaries and work that’s rewarding, engineering and geoscience are two careers to consider if you want to make a positive change in the world and have fun doing it.

How Do I Get Started?

The first step is to make sure you complete the high school classes needed to meet the admissions requirements of the program you would like to study after graduation. Review the admissions requirements for the University of Manitoba’s Faculties of Engineering and Science, Brandon University’s Faculty of Science, and other schools that offer similar programs. Talk to your teachers, guidance counsellors, or your parents for advice.

If you are Indigenous and did not have access to the prerequisites required to apply to, prepare for, and succeed in engineering, check out the admissions requirements for the U of M Engineering Access Program that can help bridge that gap.

University College of the North offers first-year engineering courses. Contact them to see what is being offered in Thompson and The Pas for the upcoming term.
