The Student Energy Chapter at Carleton University (SEC) was created out of the desire of a group of students to make a positive impact in Canada and the globe by fostering student opportunities and engagement in the energy sector. As a chapter, SEC is an interdisciplinary, global, non-biased, non-partisan chapter of Student Energy.


Our objective is to serve as an interdisciplinary forum for student engagement across disciplines—such as engineering, business, public affairs, and the sciences—on energy through debates, speaker series, workshops, and networking events.

The organization shall work to:

  • Provide students with an interdisciplinary space to learn and discuss energy issues, and a space to develop, discuss, and forward energy solutions.

  • Educate students on the different sources of energy available, as well as the different sides on energy debates, professional and academic opportunities in the sector.

  • Provide the necessary learning tools for students to have a seat at the table on energy discussions pertaining Canada and the globe.
