Canadian Federation of Engineering Students (CFES)

What is CFES?

Think EUS, but bigger. It is a bilingual national student organization representing Canadian engineering students. Their goal is to enhance the student experience through various competitions, conferences, and workshops.

Canadian Engineering Competition:

What is it?

The goal of these competitions is to foster relationships between students by providing a setting for professional engineering practice as well as networking opportunities.

You MUST compete in McGill Engineering Competition (MEC) and Quebec Engineering Competition in order to be considered.

Why should I do MEC?

- A chance to put your critical-thinking, consulting, and/or design skills to test

- A chance to meet peers from across McGill, Quebec, and Canada
