Happy 50th Anniversary CTTAM!

November 10, 2015

 CTTAM 50th_1 (2)

The role of Engineering Technologist may have existed for years but its title and recognition is not as old as you may think. In fact in Manitoba, the Engineering Technologist has only been around for 50 years.
October 28th, 1965 was the day Engineering Technologists were finally recognized in Manitoba through the emergence of MANSCETT (Manitoba Society of Certified Engineering Technicians & Technologists) now known as CTTAM (Certified Technicians & Technologists Association of Manitoba). Fifty years later, technologists, technicians, engineers, and professionals celebrated this achievement with grace and in style.

Friday night’s Young Leaders Mentorship Program Launch was held at the Journey to Churchill exhibit at the Assiniboine Park Zoo. The polar bears swam, the seals played, and the humans talked, ate, and enjoyed themselves immensely. The CTTAM Young Leaders presented the Mentorship Program that will match experienced CTTAM members with engineering technology students as they navigate through their education, co-op work terms, and careers.

Saturday evening’s Gala dinner was delicious as we sat under the wings of vintage aircraft that had been built, designed, and/or flown by Canadians and Canadian companies. This has been a powerful weekend where students, graduates and College staff, and industry partners spent the evening as colleagues and mentors discussing all types of subject matter.

It was noted that 1/3 of the attendees at the Gala are currently students at Red River College. and another 1/3 of those attending are past graduates of Red River College. It was evident that Red River College contributes a large number of Engineering Technologists to Manitoba. Thanks to the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists (CCTT), the national affiliate to CTTAM, RRC’s engineering technology programs recognized throughout the country as providing high quality professionals ready to contribute to their professions in a meaningful and lasting way.

They say there are six degrees of separation in knowing everyone in the world and in Winnipeg, it may only be one or two! One way to know everyone in your industry will be to be part of at least one industry-based association and for Engineering Technologists that should include CTTAM.

Happy 50th anniversary CTTAM and congratulations to all past and current CTTAM members for 50 years of growth, strength and leadership!

Contributor – Shari Bielert, Chair of Civil Engineering Technology, CTTAM member since 1997.
