If you are an engineering or Earth science student enrolled in a post-secondary institution at the undergraduate or master's level, you are eligible for Student Membership. Student Membership is the first step in your professional career. Becoming a Student Member can help ease the transition from student life to your career, and provides you with access to events and resources that can help you make valuable industry connections.
Student and Industry Night at UBC Okanagan
Tuesday, January 21, 2020
6:30 PM–7:00 PM: Registration
7:00 PM–8:00 PM: Presentation
8:00–9:00 PM: Networking
Join us for a free networking event and presentation hosted by the School of Engineering in collaboration with Engineers and Geoscientists BC.
This fun and casual evening provides a great opportunity for industry professionals to share their knowledge, career anecdotes, and advice with engineering and geoscience students. It's also a great opportunity to socialize and network with fellow colleagues.
Light appetizers and refreshments will be served during the networking session.
Scholarships are available for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students pursuing studies in engineering and geoscience. The Foundation and Engineers and Geoscientists BC Branches offer several scholarships for students.
Log onto your Student Member account to access sample resumes from members, interview advice, and more.
This system for recording, assessing, and validating engineering work experience allows you to identify how you meet our seven competency categories for professional engineering registration.
University geoscience programs are not formally accredited. Earth science students who wish to obtain geoscientist-in-training (GIT) or professional geoscientist (P.Geo.) licensure after graduation must ensure they meet the academic qualifications that we have established. BC institution-specific course equivalency lists are available for environmental geoscience and geology. General syllabi are available for students studying outside of BC or geophysics students.
Learn more or apply to become an engineer-in-training (EIT) or geoscientist-in-training (GIT) after graduation. By becoming a member-in-training, you demonstrate to employers and the public that you are academically qualified to gain your P.Eng. or P.Geo. licence in the near future.
Resources are available for teachers or K–12 students. Search through a list of science-based websites, learn about activities for students, engineering and geoscience events, and find out more about the engineering and geoscience careers.
