Manitoba Hydro

 Manitoba Hydro is the province’s sole electrical and natural gas utility, evolving from the Winnipeg Gas Company founded in 1873 to its present state where it operates 16 hydroelectric generating stations and almost 11 000 km of transmission and distribution pipelines. These generating stations range as far north as the Lower Nelson River near the town of Gillam, and as far south as Seven Sisters. Harnessing the flow of the Nelson, Laurie, and Winnipeg Rivers, they boast a generating capacity of 6 100 megawatts. For reference, just over 11 000 watts can supply power to a single home.

 To this end, Manitoba Hydro employs the largest group of electrical, civil, and mechanical engineers of any company in the province. From transmission line engineering to operations studies to generation design, and beyond, Manitoba Hydro works to deliver reliable, clean, and cost-effective energy to its customers. It also provides an engineer-in-training rotation program to expose new graduates to various departments within the corporation.

The Presentation

 Auto racing is a combination of driver skill and vehicle capabilities. This presentation will focus on high performance driving techniques used in road racing, autocross and performance driving. 

The Race

After the presentation, we will apply the lessons in a one-hour Le Mans-style kart race at Speedworld! Teams assigned to each kart will race against each other to complete as many laps as possible before time runs out!


Teams will be a mix of SAE students, professional SAE members, and other guests. This is a great networking opportunity for students and professionals alike!


Our Speaker

Corey Dyck is a Mechanical Engineering graduate of the U of Manitoba. While working in the heavy-duty transit industry, he's pursued amateur motorsports as a passion for over 20 years now. Corey has won a few Canadian National Championships and has placed in the top 10 in US National competitions in his chosen sport of autocross. He's created, refined, and instructed at a local autocross racing school that has helped hundreds of drivers reach their personal goals in amateur motorsports over the past 20+ years. 


Student Recognition

SAE Manitoba would like to recognize the world-class UMSAE student organization here in Manitoba. Together, they form one of the largest student member groups in the world. This event celebrates their participation in SAE, their contribution to the industry, and their role in the development of the engineering function in society, and gives them a networking opportunity with professional SAE MB members. It also gives the professional members a chance to show their support for the students by contributing to this event.
