At EXP, we believe in creating a nurturing environment where all team members can grow and become leaders in the engineering and architecture industry. One of our initiatives is the Iron Ring Club. We’re proud to inspire and mentor the next generation of engineers with a program that shows Engineers in Training (EITs) how EXP values their skillset and is invested in their growth. Director, Building Science Sathya Ramachandran and his team recently started the Iron Ring Club. The club is named after ‘The Iron Ring’ worn by Canadian engineers as a symbol of solidarity and professional duty. The club is a platform where EITs in the Brampton office can join in asking questions to Professional Engineers (P. Eng.) about industry practices, the next steps for their career growth and how to tackle difficult situations while working on a project.
“We believe in the growth of our team members. This club focuses on mentoring and helping our junior team members grow within EXP and take their engineering careers to the next level,” says Sathya.
Project Manager, Building Science Matt Davis, who works in our Brampton office, is the club’s moderator. The club aims to answer any questions EITs might have about obtaining their P. Eng. License. It is also a platform for senior staff to update EITs about the latest directions of the Professional Engineers Ontario group.
Another core objective of the club is to reinforce ethical guidelines and professionalism. Senior engineers share their life experiences, challenges and challenges they have faced while working on projects. They share how they overcame their challenges and maintained the code of ethics and their professionalism through these experiences.
The club is gaining popularity and becoming a platform that encourages engineers across groups to interact and strengthen “One EXP.”
