We are pleased to announce that Christina McCusker, a fourth-year student in the Industrial Systems Engineering program at the University of Regina, is the latest recipient of the Associated Engineering Award!
“It means so much to me to be recognized for my hard work by such a respected company. I am truly grateful for both the recognition and financial help this award has provided me.” - Christina
The Associated Engineering Award at the University of Regina was originally created in 1967. The award is available to undergraduate students in the Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science at the University of Regina, who are studying industrial systems, environmental systems, or electronic systems engineering.
Christina told us, "By studying engineering, I have learned that I really like to solve problems. I love finding solutions and implementing them."

On her career aspirations, Christina shared that she really just wants to learn as much as possible, to try new things and learn what she likes. She says there is so much to learn in engineering, which she finds very exciting.
"(In engineering) Everything is constantly evolving and changing and I love the idea that there will always be more to learn and new ways to grow and try something new."
As an example of yet another well rounded student, Christina shared with us that she enjoys doing anything active and the outdoors, particularly skiing, hiking, biking, and spending time at the lake. "I also really enjoy just about any sport and in my retired student-athlete days, I have been enjoying playing recreational volleyball, curling and slo-pitch (and hopes to again soon once the pandemic has passed!).
Well done Christina! And best of luck as you complete your degree program!
