Engineering is a caring profession and engineers have always been connected to the communities they serve.

To build these types of connections and learn about the communities in which they will practice, engineering students have been completing work terms with community groups and not-for-profit organizations. These experiences have been helping engineering students gain technical skills while learning to appreciate the role that engineers play in the protection of the public and the environment.

Join the faculty for a free virtual public lecture on Tuesday, April 5 at 7 p.m. (NDT) as Prof. Darlene Spracklin-Reid talks about how engineering students are learning that engineering is a caring profession through community-based work terms.

This lecture is being hosted by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Memorial and the Professional Engineers & Geoscientists Newfoundland & Labrador.
