EngWAY: Engineering Week for Aboriginal Youth 

Aboriginal University Experience (AUE)This program, for students in grades 7 and 8, brings to life the concept of post-secondary education by having participants live on campus for four days. Attend classes, eat in the cafeteria, meet new friends...it’s what university life is about!

Find out more on our EngWAY page.



 EMC and QSEA on-campus 

EMC on-campusEMC is the Enrichment Mini Courses series, designed for highly motivated high school students who are interested in engineering, occuring in May each year. QSEA is a specialized engineering summer academy offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen's in the months of July and August.

Do you know an Aboriginal student who might fit the bill for either of these programs? Encourage them to apply to the Monture Aboriginal Engineering bursary, in order to attend a one-week on-campus experience at Queen’s in 2017.


Community Engagement Projects            

PromoScience Outreach ProgramNSERC's PromoScience program has funded community outreach with AAE since 2013. We have travelled to community socials, pow-wows and festivals, and look forward to deepening Community Engagement over the next three years with the continued support of PromoScience.


 Community Partner Programs

Aboriginal Access to Engineering partners with community groups and educational organizations in geographic proximity to Kingston throughout the year. In 2016-2017, sustained community partnerships are in place with First Nation schools and day camps in Akwesasne, Bkejwanong, Kanehsatake, and Tyendinaga, as well as with Durham District School Board's Aboriginal Family Network.

Community partner programs are made possible in part through funding from Actua and Google CodeMakers
