On Monday, January 16th, the annual Western Engineering Week (WEW) commenced! This event started at 8:30am on the Monday and took place until Friday night. The entire week followed the Battles of Discipline theme. That meant coming out to events and winning competitions which won the respective discipline points! At the end of the week, there was be a grand prize for the winning discipline.

Discipline teams are broken down as follows: Software, Civil, Chemical & Green Process, Integrated & Mechatronics, Mechanical, Electrical & Computer and First Year Students.

I had the opportunity to speak with Allie Bachtold, the current Western Engineering Week Commissioner on Western’s Undergraduate Engineering Society. She is currently in her second year of Integrated Engineering and is very passionate about being involved in the engineering community!
