Engineering: It is more than you think!

Engineering: It’s more than you think

Join us for our YouTube Livestream Event on Feb. 10 from 4 to 6 pm CST-SK Time.

Do you know students who don’t know what to do after graduation? Have they dismissed engineering because they think it’s just math and science? Tell them about Engineering: It’s more than you think, a YouTube livestream event where they can learn just how diverse engineering is. From finding new ways to detect breast cancer to saving horses; turning waste into fuel and making safe drinking water – these are all stories from USask Engineering difference makers.

Come meet our students, alumni, and researchers and learn how they are transforming our world in some unexpected ways. This event is open to all students, parents, and educators.

Register here for the session.
