Welcome to Aboriginal Access to Engineering, Queen's University


Engineering Week for Aboriginal Youth

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!


EngWAY is proud to participate in Codemakers, a national program powered by Actua and Google.  Actua's network members at post-secondary institutions across Canada will empower 100,000 youth with critical computer science skills and prepare them for their future roles as innovators in technology. 

We also thank Shell Canada for their support of the program. 

EngWAY 2017 focussed on Green Technology in First Nations - wind and solar power, along with digital literacy skills


In the 2014 iteration of the program, students spent one afternoon learning about the significance of the teepee in Cree culture and then helped raise a new one at the Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre.

From 2013, here is a collection of photos from our ESU/Aboriginal University Experience week. This was a program that came before EngWAY was developed, but was similar in format.
