The Professorship

The Goldcorp Professorship in Women in Engineering focuses on promoting engineering as a creative and rewarding career. It aims to broaden the current talent by reaching out to high school students, parents, and counsellors to encourage students with aptitude in science, engineering and math to pursue a career in those fields. The professorship will help nation-wide efforts to address the skills shortage of approximately 100,000 engineers as predicted by Engineers Canada by 2020.
