Excitement continues to build after several roll-out activities have been successfully delivered for ACEC's human resources video project "Engineering Legacies."

Excitement continues to build after several roll-out activities have been successfully delivered for ACEC’s human resources video project “Engineering Legacies.”

Early in February, ACEC presented the highlight reel to a student audience at the Ontario Engineering Competition (OEC) and participated in the Career Fair with its exhibit booth. Students were impressed with the video and interested in more information about consulting engineering.

In March, ACEC will be present at the Canadian Engineering Competition which is the national event for the OEC and its respective provincial counterpart competitions. In addition, ACEC will present to the National Council of Deans of Engineering and Applied Science.

Also in March, ACEC will commence an information session tour targeting engineering students graduation from 4th year in the spring. Universities lined up for this tour include the University of Dalhousie, University of Regina, University of Saskatchewan, and University of British Columbia. A formal cross-Canada tour will be arranged for the fall of 2009 where ACEC aspires to reach every province.

The official release of the “Engineering Legacies” campaign took place on February 24 at the Canadian Consulting Engineering Awards Gala Dinner in Ottawa.

The only outstanding items to date are:

• Final communications plan

• Wrap up of footage

• Editing of video modules

• French and English website

• French promotional material

• DVD casing and design

Once again, ACEC would like to sincerely thank its generous sponsors for supporting this project. Sponsors can be viewed at
