Robert Quigley


Robert is in his final year of mechanical engineering at Memorial University. He has been involved with the Student Society since his second year. After participating at AEC in 2012 he saw hosting CEC as an opportunity to put Memorial University back on the map and get our students more involved.

His work experience covers a broad range of industries including aerospace, on and offshore oil as well as mining. These work terms have seen Robert around the world working in Labrador, Alberta, Houston and South Korea.

Robert is very happy to be Co-chairing this competition and is happy to have a great team working with this to bring you the best CEC to date. (Yeah that's right Western, we're gonna do better than 2014. Oh and McGill, take some notes for 2016!)

Tyler Rowsell


Tyler is a final year Mechanical, Offshore Oil and Gas Engineering Student. He has worked with various offshore oil and gas companies in Newfoundland and Labrador as well as the provincial government. Tyler has been involved with Memorial's Engineering Society since Term 3 and was excited to take on the Canadian Engineering Competition. In what free time he has left he plays volleyball with Memorial's Varsity Volleyball team.

John Constantine

VP Competitions

John is in his final year of Mechanical Engineering. He has worked in manufacturing, hydroelectric, mining, and offshore drilling. John has also competed in the past in the senior design and communications categories. Way too much of John's time is tied up playing rugby. John is very excited to be the VP Competitions and is looking forward to the competition weekend.

Logan Miller

VP Finance

Logan is a final year Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering student at Memorial University. His work terms have primarily been related to the structural design of floating offshore installations and project management. He is an active volunteer with the local St. John Ambulance Medical First Response Brigade, and a past volunteer with Scouts Canada.

He welcomed the challenge of managing CEC’s financials.

Plus Rob made him.

Lori wareham

VP Hospitality

Lori just passed the half way point through her degree of Ocean and Naval Architectural engineering (but who's counting?). She adores her program and loves getting to attend MUN, but she will admit she was a little sad when she didn't get into her first choice of Hogwarts.

She has currently completed two fantastic work terms, getting to focus on her interest of ice engineering, ice breaking, and the general challenges of operating in ice environments. It's pretty *cool* stuff. (Huh? Huh? Anyone?)

Most of Lori's time is divided amongst the various activities she is involved in. From general volunteer with youth organizations, to a Girl Guide Leader, to an executive on the MUN Engineering Society, to a Memorial University Ambassador, to a youth representative on a local Credit Union to... well. There's a few. But it's all fun and interesting and she feels privileged to get to partake in so many incredible things!

She is absolutely thrilled to be the VP Hospitality for CEC. She cannot wait to meet all the competitors she has been planning for the last year and a half! Good luck to all!

Jessica Brandt

VP Logistics

Jess Madore

VP Sponsorship

Jessica is a term 8 Process Engineering students at Memorial University and will be graduating in April 2015. Through her 5 years within the engineering program she has been heavily involved within the engineering society and has successfully completed 5 work terms. The reason she chose to become involved with the planning of the 2015 CEC is because she wanted to bring such a large-scale event to the east coast of Newfoundland and to provide opportunities for students to become involved with the CFES early within their degrees.

During her time with the engineering society she held the title of Director of High School Outreach. In this role she coordinated visits with high schools and summer camps to give presentations to potential future engineering students. This required design of presentations and also recruitment of volunteers. In addition to these responsibilities Jessica also aided in various other projects including the 2013 Charity Ball in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Newfoundland. This event raised $14,500 for the organization.

She has spent time both within St. John’s and Houston on her 5 work terms. These were with Provincial Aerospace (St. John’s), Cameron (now OneSubsea, St. John’s), Assured Flow Solutions (two terms, Houston) and Husky Energy (St. John’s).
