College Math Competition

  • Students often ask the question "When am I going to need this?” when they study mathematics. Our Mohawk Math Engineering Competition is trying to answer that question.

    This competition introduces students to different applications of mathematics in engineering areas and encourages them to consider future careers in engineering technology. We provide sample questions for each discipline in engineering: Civil and Architecture, Chemical, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science.

    MMEC - Mohawk Math Engineering Competition 2019 was held on Tuesday, May 14th at Mohawk College. We had 125 registered high school students from 18 different high schools (from 6 school boards). This year we introduced a new category where students were invited to write an essay. The theme this year was "The Life and Work of a Mathematician".

    We welcome all other colleges to join us so we can grow to other areas across Ontario. If you have any questions, please email us at

  • This is great! Would like to find out more about this: the planning and implementation, etc.

  • @Srishta Please feel free to connect with me directly at
    We have a few colleges interested in joining us and it may be nice if we can all get together and start planning for next year together.

  • Fantastic idea. Our college is also interested in offering a math competition.
