About us

Engineers of Tomorrow is a not-for-profit that is shaping the engineering narrative by telling better stories. 

Want to talk to kids about engineering? Here’s how!

Hey engineers!

I hear you. Yes YOU!

You want to make a difference.

You want to give back to your local community, but aren’t sure where to start. Or how?

You’ve been busy getting your engineering degree…becoming a professional engineer…and then working hard everyday to solve everyone else’s problems!

If I had to guess, I’d say you’ve got some unique skills to share.

You’ve got a fantastic story that’s begging to be told!

And only YOU can share your experience and bring engineering to LIFE for today’s students. They are YOU…5, 10, maybe 20 years ago!

And I know you wish someone was there to tell you more about engineering back then. What it’s REALLY all about!

You’re one of the lucky ones.

You figured it all out on your own.

But don’t you wish you had someone there to guide you? Someone you could look up to. Someone you could connect to.

A role model!

You. Can. Be. That. Person.

Listen, we know you’re busy. You want to BE that person, but you just need a little help.

We hear you!

We’re here to help.


We want to help you BE that person.

And *spoiler alert* we need your help too!

Let’s help each other, mmmk?!?

We are looking for volunteers for our Engineer in Residence program right now!

What is it? You get matched up with a local K-12 classroom and visit them about once a month* to tell your story, do fun hands-on STEM activities with them, and talk to them about….engineering!

Who is it for? All the way from kindergarten to grade 12! But, let’s be honest – it’s for you too! We want EVERYONE to have an amazing experience and connect to engineering in ways they’ve never before.

Where? We match you with a classroom that is CLOSE to you! You can tell us if you prefer to be matched closer to your home, or work address.

When? The program starts September 2020 – but you need to apply NOW! Applications close May 31st.

How? Easy! Apply online at EIR.ca – it only takes a few minutes!

*Don’t worry….the program is totally customize-able and flexible to meet YOUR schedule!

Question? Just ask [email protected]!
