Queen’s Engineering Competition (QEC)
The Queen’s Engineering Competition aims to inspire excellence through competition within the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. Delegates are invited to a conference style case competition and are asked to select one of eight challenges of the type engineers encounter every day. This opportunity to take our skills outside of the classroom shows ourselves and our industry partners the competence and creativity we all hold within us.
The winners of each category are selected to compete at the Ontario Engineering Competition (OEC), where they compete for cash prizes and a chance to attend the Canadian Engineering Competition (CEC).
Engineering students from all years and disciplines are welcome to participate in any of our eight categories:
- Junior Design
- Senior Design
Commerce and Engineering Environmental Conference (CEEC)
We are the Commerce & Engineering Environmental Conference held at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. As the premier undergraduate sustainability conference in Canada, we aim to expose delegates to the rapidly expanding and disruptive green industry, an area with substantial economic and social impact. CEEC explores the business opportunities and technology that will allow for the next generation of great companies to lead us into a world that is built upon renewable energy and other green innovation.
Queen’s Space Conference (QSC)
The Queen’s Space Conference (QSC), held at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, is an annual, non-profit, student-run conference focused on connecting undergraduate students with Space industry leaders. The conference is centered around a series of exciting talks, innovative workshops, and networking opportunities.
We strive to bring together industry professionals in order to provide delegates the most informative, inspiring, and memorable conference possible. QSC is about sparking thought and idea-generation, about raising the awareness of the potential of the space industry, and about piquing the interest of the future generation of that industry.
Queen’s Conference on Business Technology (QCBT)
The conference tackles two subjects that are collectively shaping our world and the way we live. Over a two day weekend, a group of talented and impactful students connect with industry leaders to progress themselves in both an academic and social sense. Bringing together 130 students from over 12 different schools around Canada, QCBT is a winning formula for curious minds to engage in meaningful content that will explore the business and technology space.
Queen’s Global Innovation Conference (QGIC)
The Queen’s Global Innovation Conference (QGIC) has the intention of promoting and fostering discussions around rapidly expanding global topics. Our focus for 2018 is to both educate and inspire delegates through exposure to breakthrough research and innovative designs in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Throughout this conference there will be inspiring speeches given by Keynote Speakers, group discussions led by technological experts and entrepreneurs, and multiple activities intended to introduce concepts and promote critical thinking. All attendees will receive ample opportunity to network throughout gourmet meals, organized nightly events, networking sessions, and group challenges.
Queen’s Global Energy Conference (QGEC)
QGEC aims to educate delegates on trends and technologies in a variety of energy sectors, while providing insight into how they affect the energy industry as a whole.
Our goal is to provide delegates with a unique world view of the energy industry by connecting them with experts, thought leaders and innovators from across different energy sectors. The conference provides industry professionals with the opportunity to inspire a new generation of talent, and guide them through this state of change.
Queen’s First Year Conference (QFYC)
First Year Conference is a two day conference designed to prepare delegates to make positive decisions that will help them navigate their future.
Speakers such as recent graduates and leaders at Queen’s or in industry will inspire delegates to be their absolute best. Workshops are designed to provide the delegates with helpful information on experiences or decisions they will face in the next three years and beyond. Just a few topics covered include stress management, FREC Interviews, academic advice, and building skills that will make them an outstanding candidate for their dream job. Delegates can expect to laugh, meet new people, and walk away with invaluable information they will use for the rest of their time at Queen’s.
Conference on Industry and Resources: Queen’s University Engineering(CIRQUE)
The Conference on Industry and Resource: Queen’s University Engineering was founded in 1983 to show engineers the versatility of the engineering degree
and the wide spectrum of job opportunities available to engineering graduates. Each year, CIRQUE connects motivated and intelligent students with industry leaders, who share their insights and experiences into career paths and succeeding after graduation.
Previous speakers include Professor David Wallace of MIT, astronaut Chris Hadfield, and Sleep Country Canada co-founder Steve Gunn. We welcome you to a weekend of stimulating speakers, one on one conversation and delicious meals as you learn about your future in engineering. A portion of the committee for CIRQUE 2017 will be hired early in September and we encourage all years to apply! Check the Engineering Society website for updates!
