Volunteer Opportunities

January 30 | Annual Red Deer College Engineering Students’ Night

Join fellow members as you share your experience in engineering with Red Deer College students. Interacting in an informal setting with engineers and engineers-in-training helps students decide on their specializations. This is an invaluable opportunity for them to learn about navigating their profession from experienced engineers—and you get to claim CPD hours.

The event takes place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Farside Lounge, pizza and snacks provided. RSVP to Wei Zhao at wei.zhao@rdc.ab.ca.

Science Olympics Volunteers

APEGA is looking for enthusiastic volunteers interested in sharing their passion for engineering and geoscience with students at the 2019 APEGA Science Olympics—Red Deer.
