Welcome to MPG!
MPG is an extracurricular embedded systems program offered by Engenuics at the University of Calgary and expanding to other universities
across Canada with "MPG Remote." It is now in its 12th consecutive year at the U of C and has grown to become a unique supplementary curriculum for
students in 2nd, 3rd and 4th year Electrical, Computer and Software engineering. MPG is taught free-of-charge though students may purchase their own
development board used in each course at cost. Learn more about MPG here.

Welcome to the second half of MPG!
MPG Level 1 and MPG Level 2 will run concurrently on Mondays from 4:00pm - 7:00pm from January 14 to April 1, 2013. Most of your time will be spent working in the labs, but there
will be some brief instruction every few meetings. Instruction time for MPG Level 1 is 4:05 - 4:25pm; instruction time for MPG Level 2 is
5:05pm - 5:25 pm. Lectures will be webcast as a Google Hangout from the
Engenuics Google+ page, and then immediately available on the
Engenuics You Tube channel.

MPG on your transcript AND $1500 bursary program
New for 2012! Three MPG positions are now eligible for the U of C co-curricular record
so participation in the program is captured
on your transcript. To find out how to qualify, check out the position
leadership.ucalgary.ca and search for "MPG." Be
sure to read the requirements to qualify for this credit. Other universities are welcome to use these for your own CCR - please email for help!
The same criteria will be used to identify candidates for the MPG student
bursary worth $500. There is an additional $500 bursary available to
student leaders, and another $500 for the most successful IEEE Student
branch that runs an MPG Remote program in Canada.
NEW: Submit your designs, get $50
There have been some great projects out of MPG that we want to share with the world. Engenuics will pay you $50 to submit your project so we can feature
it online. Full details can be found here.
The 2012 MPG Level 2 class
The technical side of MPG is definitely beneficial and the networking side is also extremely valuable. Over 700 students have experienced MPG and it
is pretty safe to say that everyone has had a great time! Industry support is very important to MPG:
