Aspiring Engineer Scholarship

Engineering is a profession that touches every facet of society. Engineers are called upon to design, resolve problems, and establish regulations. Their decisions impact society and, as such, they are held to a higher standard.

An engineering degree is the beginning of the formation of a professional engineer and can lead to a vast number of career opportunities, with graduates in demand in almost every sector of the economy.  At university, engineering students take a broad range of subjects that equip them for real engineering work-life challenges. 


The Professional Engineers Ontario Brampton Chapter is pleased to offer two $500 University Entrance Scholarships to Aspiring Engineers embarking on their first year of study in engineering.
