About Go Eng Girl

Over 16 Faculties and Schools of Engineering across Canada are presenting GO ENG Girl and Go CODE Girl programs which includes hands-on activities to showcase the wide range of undergraduate programs and future careers that are available in engineering. There will be opportunities to meet role models, engineering students, faculty members and participate in fun and interactive activities in small groups.

Parents are welcome for an informative Q&A session about the field of engineering.

The Go ENG Girl and Go CODE Girl programs are being coordinated by the Ontario Network of Women in Engineering (ONWiE) with the support of the Council of Ontario Deans of Engineering (CODE). All Faculties and Schools of Engineering are working together to encourage young women to discover exciting opportunities in engineering and to ensure that old stereotypes of the profession are dispelled.
