Municipal Engineers Division
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;
- Networking events and resources on relevant issues;
- Development of common standards such as the Master Municipal Construction Documents; and
- 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.
