MacEng Insight: February 2021
CEPEM

This past month, the Faculty of Engineering forged ahead with two important initiatives to support Black engineering students in Canada, and celebrated a $1.2M provincial grant to advance McMaster's work in PPE research and development. We also held one of our biggest alumni networking events virtually for the first time, opening the doors for international alumni from more than 10 countries to connect.

You may read about these highlights and more below.
