What does the science really say about climate change?
How can we account for future weather in our designs?
Does this trigger any responsibilities for our profession?
What are the economic opportunities and challenges?
Come hear about climate science told from an engineering perspective, hear the latest scientific findings, and have your questions answered. This will be a two hour presentation with an intermission.
Speaker: Yannick Trottier, P.Eng.
Mr. Yannick Trottier, P.Eng. holds a degree from MIT in aerospace engineering, and completed a nine-week MIT class on Climate Science.

The Mississauga Chapter is launching a Licensure Assistance Program in your area. This program is designed to link licensed Professional Engineers (Guides) with Engineering Interns to provide guidance and support to the intern as he/she progresses towards professional licensure status.
Volunteers (Guide/Mentors) are the lifeblood of PEO and participating through the association can be a very rewarding experience that provides on-going professional skills development.
This Licensure Assistance Program is expected to run from June 15, 2014 to Dec. 15, 2014. You would be expected to meet with your Guide/Intern for at least 2 hours a month over that time period and to provide feedback to the Chapter.
Your valuable experience is needed to help guide a young intern to licensure. Volunteer to be a part of this great, new initiative!
For more information and to apply (Guide and Intern- by April 25th), please click on PEO Licensure Assistance Program.
NOTE: If you have already registered for the Licensure Assistance Program in the past (as a guide or intern), you do not need to register again. Please contact Rishi Kumar and you will be provided with your login details.
Limited Space Available.
