National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM)
National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM) is a celebration of engineering and geoscience held every year in March. This month-long event promotes awareness of the engineering and geoscience professions, highlights career choices in these fields and reminds the public of the many ways in which engineering and geoscience touch everyday life. This year, we are proud to encourage this initiative under the larger umbrella of the centenary year.
The centenary year marks 100 years of ethics, excellence, and progress. We will look back at our proud history of safety, innovation, and building British Columbia, and look forward to the vibrant future. For 2020, we will celebrate the feats of engineering and geoscience over 100 years.
In celebration of NEGM, Engineers and Geoscientists BC branches have organized events at different locations across BC. Find out which events are happening in your community.
