Dear Students,
 
This issue highlights the contribution of the student clubs that are active in engineering schools and faculties across Québec. It includes an interesting article about students involved in a formula SAE project.
 
Whether they concern vehicle design competitions or other social and technological projects, the challenges tackled by these clubs give the students involved an opportunity to solve problems, show their knowledge and expertise, and push their boundaries. In short, these projects very often require core competencies and values that engineers apply every day in their work.
 
These competencies and values are sought by the employers who hire engineering graduates. The experience acquired in student clubs is therefore useful in an engineering career.
 
Every year, hundreds of students across the province are active in one or more clubs. I encourage them to continue their involvement and invite others to get involved!
