Here’s How this Water Technology Grad Break Barriers in Engineering Field


Women are now shattering the glass ceiling as they are enrolling themselves in Engineering and Computer Science at some of the nation’s most renowned colleges and universities. Likewise, the journey of Meghan McCreight first began at Okanagan College in Salmon Arm where she did the first year of her Associate of Science.

Meghan’s enthusiasm for environmental protection helped her win a respectable prize. She is also acting as an inspiration for other women. She heard about Water Engineering Technology (WET) program at the Kelowna campus in her Okanagan College. She has always been close to nature because her family is very active, skiers, vacationers, and always kind of outdoor.

McCreight graduated from OC’s WET program in December. There she earned the Irving K. Barber Women in Technology Scholarship within the top-level, valued at $10,000. The main aim of the scholarship is to acknowledge women who are outshining in their studies of computer/data science, engineering, or mathematics in post-secondary.

Furthermore, the main purpose of the scholarship is to grant women’s distinction in technology and inspire future generations of women to enter a traditionally male-dominated field. McCreight disclosed that she wouldn’t be able to achieve the award without the inspiration of WET program chair Allison O’Neill, who sent out the scholarship application to all the women in the program.

In addition, she disclosed that after earning the scholarship her first feeling was a surprise. Moreover, McCreight’s commitment and hard work have been repaid, clearing the way for further studies in STEM. Meghan confirmed that after her graduation from the WET program, she is intending to continue her studies at the University of Victoria. She is planning to do a double major in biology and environmental studies, which her scholarship will support.
