Happy Holidays from the Friends of Engineering

On behalf of the Board of the Friends of Engineering, I want to thank you for your membership and participation in the Friends of Engineering. As 2015 draws to a close, I am reminded what a busy year it has been for Friends.

I do hope you have taken advantage of the events and networking opportunities we have offered this past year, including the Friends of Engineering/UMES Wine & Cheese last month. We were delighted to host and showcase winners of the Technical Communications Report Prizes, winning teams of the Friends of Engineering Intro to Engineering Design prize, and Friends of Engineering Co-op/IIP Student of the Year at this event. We also hosted several other students from the various competition teams and student groups that have received Friend’s support to attend competitions and conferences.

The Board has been meeting to discuss upcoming events as well as the continuation of our mandate and is excited about the possibilities in this upcoming year. I would welcome your participation and input at our next Annual General Meeting being held on February 24th 2016. Expect a formal invitation with more details soon.

If you have suggestions for the Board, please contact our Executive Director, Amber Skrabek at 204-474-9034 or email her at amber_skrabek@umanitoba.ca

Once again, thank you for being a Friend of Engineering.

Walter Czyrnyj, P.Eng.,
