QGEC could not be as successful without our wonderful partners.
University of Toronto
Sustainable Engineers Association (SEA)
We are extremely excited to announce our partnership with the University of Toronto’s Sustainable Engineers Association (SEA)! They will be sending students to our conference, and in return, we will be sending some of our students to the U of T Sustainability Conference.
SEA's annual Sustainability Conference is taking place on January 28th. This year's theme is “From Policy to Practice”. We will be showcasing how various sustainable projects, ventures and policies are currently being applied within industry practice.
This collaboration is exciting for both groups as it gives both parties an opportunity to increase delegate diversity. Delegate diversity is essential in the discussion of global energy and sustainability due to the inherent multidisciplinary nature of such problems. More information about the U of T Sustainability Conference can be found at their Facebook page.
Engineering Commerce Investment Club (ECIC)
The Engineering Commerce Investment Club (ECIC) is a club that aims to provide skills and knowledge pertaining to money management, investing, and business creation. During the conference, they will be providing participants with a stock simulator.
The QGEC stock simulator will provide delegates with the opportunity to experience what it’s like to invest and manage a portfolio. Delegates will be split into groups where they will be given information on market conditions and a variety of stocks from a range of sectors. Each group will start with the same amount of money and will have the ability to invest and buy stocks. Over the course of the weekend, a series of “shocks” will occur which will cause the values of the stocks to either increase or decrease and the money in your group’s portfolio to change. At the end of the weekend, the winning group will receive a prize.
The ECIC meets weekly at SparQ Studios in Carruthers Hall. Weekly meetings include guest speakers, stock pitches and current market discussions. ECIC is an incredibly inclusive environment that welcomes students from every faculty. The multi-disciplinary environment not only provides a variety of perspectives but allows students from a wide range of skill sets to come together and create start-ups.
