It is a key step in your professional development: At the end of the junior engineer period, you receive your engineer’s permit.

As you already know, to obtain a permit to practice as a full-fledged engineer, you will first have to work as a junior engineer under the immediate control and supervision of an experienced engineer during a 36-month apprenticeship period. The junior engineer period lets you gain experience, under supervision, to protect the public from potential mistakes.
A dozen OIQ members working at Polytechnique Montréal have co-authored, with researchers from other fields, a book on the circular economy that has just been published by the Université de Montréal’s university press (PUM). The authors suggest that waste can be reduced in this type of economy mainly by extending the service life of products, increasing recycling, managing resources according to sustainability principles and sharing the use of goods and services. Entitled L'économie circulaire: une transition incontournable, electronic versions (pdf and ePub) of the book are available for free on the PUM’s site.
The professional examination is a necessary instructional step for all junior engineers who want to become full-fledged engineers. Studying for it provides you with a great deal of knowledge not generally acquired in the field yet still essential to properly practice engineering. In this way, the examination helps future engineers become true professionals.
Dear Students,
 
Are you familiar with the “30 in 30” initiative? Engineers Canada launched it last year to ensure that 30% of new engineers will be women by 2030.
 
How close is Québec to reaching this target? How do we compare to the rest of Canada? The latest statistics reveal that Québec is above the Canadian average, as 18% of its new engineers are women.
