The world needs Professional Engineers and Geoscientists. Help us show that these professions make life work.
Professional Engineers and Geoscientists set the standards for how the world works. Let’s work together to show the value these professionals bring to the everyday lives of New Brunswickers.
It’s important that people see the contributions engineers and geoscientists offer, recognize the value you bring, and include your voice in important conversations when it comes to planning, creating and protecting our natural and built environments.
If you, or someone you know was involved in creating or designing a professional engineering or geoscience project, take a photo of it using the campaign postcard of your choice.
Post it on your social platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) using the hashtag #SettingTheStandard to help create excitement and awareness around the P.Eng. and P.Geo. designations.
Frequently Asked Questions
What about the other professions involved in creating the objects and structures that have been marked with the #SettingTheStandard tag?
A noteworthy trait of Engineers and Geoscientists is that their work is collaborative in nature. While this campaign specifically celebrates the contributions of New Brunswick’s Professional Engineers and Geoscientists, other professionals such as developers, technologists and scientists, also play a vital role in creating many of the items and structures that make our world work.
What is the purpose of a campaign like this?
As the voice of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists in New Brunswick it is our duty to regulate these professions in the province. We are governed by the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act and you can click here to learn more.
We created a campaign such as this with several goals in mind:
- To help create excitement around the P.Eng. and P.Geo. designations
- Instill a sense of pride in sharing provincial accomplishments
- To inspire the next generation
- Create awareness around the local projects and accomplishments that make life work better
What is the breakdown of your membership/registrants?
We currently have over 5,900 engineers, geoscientists, engineers-in-training, and geoscientists-in-training registered/enrolled with the Association. We also have approximately 850 retired members.
APEGNB members work in more than 16 different engineering/geoscience disciplines – from designing and creating energy-efficient buildings and faster computers to developing high-mileage vehicles and life-saving medical devices. This is in addition to the work they do to ensure New Brunswickers have safe drinking water, responsible mining practices, state-of-the-art transportation and communication systems, and renewable energy sources.
How many years has APEGNB existed?
In 1920, founding President Charles Conyers Kirby established the Association of Professional Engineers of New Brunswick to regulate the engineering profession in the province. That first year the Association registered 92 engineers.
The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of New Brunswick – more often known as APEGNB, or Engineers & Geoscientists New Brunswick – took on the responsibility of regulating New Brunswick’s geoscience profession in 1999.
2020 marks 100 years of our Association regulating these critical professions.
