APEGBC's mission is to make it easier for you - the aspiring engineer or geoscientist - to launch your career. For this reason, we have developed the Membership Advantage Program for Students (MAPS), a special class of membership in APEGBC that allows students to begin shaping their future. The MAPS program focuses on:
- Increasing the interaction between students and industry professionals.
- Providing students with the means to gain education, contacts and employment, through access to APEGBC services.
- Elevating the level of knowledge that students have about their future profession.
- Acting as a guide to students in their transition from graduation to EIT or GIT.
Membership to MAPS provides you with limitless benefits and opportunities for advancing your future as a professional.
Take advantage of all of the benefits that membership provides, express your commitment to high ethical and professional standards, and make a great impression on potential employers and industry contacts
