The First Year Integration Conference (FYIC) is a conference put on by the Engineering Student Societies Council of Ontario (ESSCO – kind of like the provincial EngSoc) with the goal of getting a group of up and coming first year students excited and involved within your engineering society and give you a glimpse of what is happening outside of the walls of your school. You will get an introduction to ESSCO and the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students (CFES-National Engsoc of EngSocs) as well as presentations from the Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO – Regulating Body) and the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE – a lobbying group for engineering in Ontario) as well as tons of other cool things.
Note: This conference is notorious for being a giant party. If you are a delegate, you are required to go to the sessions in order for the College to pay half of the fees. This means that you are more than welcome to party all night just as long as you are up in the morning for the sessions.
How much: $60 (it is actually $120 but the college is paying for half of up to 6 students)
Where: McMaster University located in gorgeous Hamilton, Ontario.
When: Friday, January 20th 2012 to Sunday, January 22nd 2012
