Parking Lot C Closure – paving repairs will be completed on Wednesday, August 15th; therefore all permit holders for Parking Lot C are required to park in Parking Lot A, D or E for this day only.

Steel Building Metered/Barrier Free Parking Lot Closure – this parking lot will be closed on Wednesday, August 15th to complete the paving repairs, all users of this parking lot are asked to park in other locations for the day.

This schedule is weather dependent and could change; updates will be provided if changes occur. While the contractor has been instructed that the work should be executed with the least possible disruption to the campus community, a certain amount is inevitable. Your patience and understanding is appreciated as we proceed with these repairs.

The final presentations for ProGRES (Promoting Girls in Research in Engineering and Sustainability) at the Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering will be this Friday, August 10, from 9 AM to 12 noon, in the FSDE Design Studio 202. 

This is the second summer for the ProGRES Program, initiated in 2017 to promote engineering research and interest among young women in high school. Through ProGRES, high school girls in Grades 11 and 12 had the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research projects independently with faculty researchers and women student mentors, and the ProGRES students also met many women engineers in various industrial sectors in our province. ProGRES also encourages creative, independent, and analytical thinking and challenges talented high-school young women (who are thinking about what to do for university and the future) to develop how they learn, design, communicate, and interact in an academic Engineering environment that is welcoming, disciplined and research-intensive. ProGRES participants are expected also to share their experiences with the public and their peers in the following school year, with the hope their positive voice will encourage other young women to choose Engineering at UPEI and as a career. 

The invitation can be found on the ProGRES students' blog here or at their Facebook page.

All are welcomed!
