The Engineering Games started in Laval University in 1990. Since the beginning, it has been an inter-university competition that allows engineering students throughout Quebec to meet each other in a friendly environment. Since its creation, the notoriety of the event has grown steadily in the student community of Quebec. The competitions include sports, academic, improvisation, trivia and design competitions.
Quebec Engineering Competition
QEC is the provincial equivalent of MEC. It is a Quebec-wide engineering competition where students individually compete in different categories.
