Canadian Consulting Engineer: Engineering students honoured with Women in Tech Scholarships
The program recognizes and empowers women in STEM.
Rittal Systems of Mississauga, Ont., has presented Electro-Federation Canada’s (EFC’s) 2021 Women in Tech Scholarships to Aliya Dube at the University of Manitoba (UM) and Anqi Xu at the University of British Columbia (UBC).
The annual scholarships, which Rittal launched with EFC in 2019, aim to recognize and empower women in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). In particular, the program is intended to help deserving women pursue their dreams in the electrical industry.
By way of example, Dube is studying electrical engineering at UM.
“I am honoured to receive this award,” she says. “This extra financial freedom will allow me to put more time into developing hard skills through hands-on experiences, providing an opportunity to better myself as a student and engineer.”
