National Engineering Month (NEM 2018) is a time to recognize, celebrate and share what engineers do every day to improve our quality of life, keep us safe and strengthen our economy. Over the next month, hundreds of events will be taking place across Canada to spread the word that when it comes to engineering – there is a place for you!
OSPE is proud to collaborate as a founding partner of NEM Ontario, and we plan to celebrate NEM 2018 through a number of fun events and workshops across the province.
What events does OSPE have planned for NEM 2018?
Purple Power at Dynamic Earth – March 1: Enjoy a talk on the mining industry, followed by an underground tour “In the Footsteps of Sudbury’s Miners,” as well as a networking reception with hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Register today!
Nothin’ But NEM with the Toronto Raptors – March 6: OSPE, PEO and OACETT members will get together for a pre-game tip-off party at The Badali Bar & Cucina, followed by an evening with the Raptors vs. Atlanta Hawks.
