Amish participated at the recent Americas Regional Finals of the Present Around the World competion.  His presentation was entitled, "ANew Hybrid Renewable Energy System (HRES) Architecture”.  Amish received his B.Sc and M.A.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from Queen’s University and he currently works at Ciena Inc.  Many of the spectators commented on the high level of the PATW presentations this year.  

Edwin Morton was a delegate from the Ottawa Network at the Volunteers Conference held the same weekend. He served as a panelist on the discussion on how the IET can work with other technical organizations.

A million thanks to Sue Leclerc, our volunteer photographer for the weekend.

It's that time of year, the kids are home from school and have nothing to do. So why not try this? http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/0/22600308 Make a microscope from a webcam! If you're successful why not share your photos here?

Canadian Prairies Group Committee

The Canadian Prairies Group of Chartered Engineers (CPGCE) is a multi-disciplinary group of members of British Engineering Institutions who live and/or work in Alberta, Saskatchewan or the Northwest Territories. “Chartered Engineer” is the professional designation for engineers registered in the UK. For further information on “Chartered Engineer” status and the registration process, please refer to the Engineering Council (UK) web link.

Sponsoring Institutions

  • Institution of Civil Engineers
  • Institution of Chemical Engineers
  • Institute of Engineering and Technology
  • Institution of Mechanical Engineers
  • Institution of Structural Engineers

The CPGCE is a learned society. It furthers the technical education and interests of its members by organizing a program of technical meetings of interdisciplinary engineering interest covering, in general but not necessarily confined to, those engineering disciplines represented by the sponsoring Institutions. Attendance at a Technical meeting counts two hours towards the requirement for Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Currently all meetings are held in Calgary. Attempts have been made (and will continue to be made) to encourage extension of this program to other centres in the region (eg Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Saskatoon, Regina).

The CPGCE offers an annual International Engineering Award (Chartered Engineers' Award). This award is an open competition for any student studying an engineering discipline covered by our sponsors. Studies must be at a University or Technical College within the Canadian Prairies region.
