The organizing committee has chosen the theme for WEC 2018 to be Innovation for a Complex World. Whatever perplexing challenges the future holds, we are confident that the solution lies within the brightest minds of our country’s engineering students.

What is WEC?

The Western Engineering Competition (WEC) is Canada’s largest undergraduate engineering competition and is an annual, three-day event which involves 12-14 universities from across western Canada. It was founded in 1985 with the purpose of bringing talented students together to practice and exhibit their problem solving, team-building, and communication skills.


As the first polytechnic in the history of the competition to host WEC, BCIT is proud to provide this opportunity for engineering students to build on their skills and create the networks that will make them leaders of tomorrow.
