Engineering is much more than building structures and machines; it is about using background knowledge and creativity to design solutions to all types of problems. Engineering students are great problem solvers; they are dedicated to their work and studies. Engineers are well versed in science and math but also have a creative streak. They love using their knowledge to solve problems.To be accepted into an engineering degree students have to fulfill a number of requirements. Each post-secondary institution has different requirements but they all include the completion of senior high school sciences and maths in particular physics, chemistry, and calculus. Students can also buffer their application with extra-curricular activities. There are lots of scholarship opportunities
for students, in particular female students, to take advantage of.
Here is an infographic to show how you can support students on the path to an engineering degree.
Students can learn more about engineering by visiting a university in their area or attending an outreach event such as Go ENG Girl.
