Municipal Engineers Division

About

The Municipal Engineers Division promotes and encourages leadership in the delivery of municipal engineering services.

The Municipal Engineering Division is a long-standing division of Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia, originally formed in 1943. It is a public-service-oriented organization of professional engineers that provides a valuable forum for professional engineers and those with an interest in municipal engineering to meet, exchange ideas, debate issues, and be a catalyst for improvement, innovation, sustainability, and change in municipal engineering. Typical programs organized by us include:

  • Technical seminars on municipal engineering and local government issues.
  • Network and resources on relevant issues and current events.
  • Development of common standards such as the Master Municipal Construction Documents.
  • Involvement in the academic community to promote careers in municipal engineering.

The Municipal Engineers Division allows you to enhance your knowledge, expand your skills, foster networking, and help create a common voice to influence positive change in the public sector municipal engineering industry.
