Making Links Engineering Classic supports engineering students
The Price Faculty of Engineering thanks Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba and the 176 golfers who attended the 17th Annual Making Links Engineering Classic.
Held on August 19th at Quarry Oaks Golf and Country Club, the event featured golf, prizes and Covid-safe networking. Each year the proceeds of this event are given to the Faculty and help to provide resources for students in all their engineering studies. This year, the golf classic raised $18,000 to support students within our Faculty.
“I appreciate the opportunity to thank our community for the ongoing support through the Making Links Engineering Classic,” said Dean Marcia Friesen. “From taking the time to attend, to the conversations along the way, to the funds raised for the Faculty, you continue to support our students. Over the past five years, these funds have been used toward the new Stanley Pauley Engineering Building which houses many of our student design competition teams, to events that allow our student leaders to showcase UM through the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students congress, to practical needs like lockers and A/V upgrades, to the celebratory items like the installation recognizing ENGAP graduates. This year’s funds will likewise be used to support and build community among students as we see our way through this pandemic and begin to come together again face-to-face with the appropriate precautions including vaccination.”
The broader engineering community in Manitoba continues to play a vital role in the success of our engineering students. We thank each of the teams for their support of the event, the event sponsors, the many staff and volunteers who are critical to the organization of events such as this, without whom this event would not be possible.
