Speaker Series: What Does “Smart” Mean? Applying Multiple Intelligences in an Engineering Setting

Katy Warren, MUN

Fourth-year electrical engineering student
Memorial University

We often get in the bad habit of assuming that to be smart you have to be a major math whiz at the top of your class, but intelligence is a much more complex subject. Join Katy Warren for a discussion on the theory of multiple intelligences, and how becoming a well-rounded thinker can give you an edge in the engineering world.


Katy Warren is a fourth-year electrical engineering student at MUN and the winner of season two of CBC’s “Canada’s Smartest Person.” As a member of the MUN team, she placed first regionally and second nationally in the re-engineering category of the Canadian Engineering Competition in 2016. Outside of engineering, she is a brand new member of local improv troupe Stanley Braxton and plays for the Neversweets with 709 Roller Derby.

Join us on Thursday, May 26th from 7:00 – 9:00pm at EN2006, Angus Bruneau Engineering Lecture Theatre, S.J. Carew Building. All are welcome and the event is free. Free parking in area 22 (next to the Faculty of Business Administration).
