Cole Roberts is a Schulich Leader scholar entering the third year of his electrical engineering degree at the University of Calgary and is also pursuing a minor in energy and environmental engineering. Cole is passionate about working towards a net-zero future and is excited about exploring the intersection of technology and sustainability as the world shifts away from traditional energy sources. As a student, he has continually sought opportunities to implement sustainable practices in his projects, including designing a modular houseplant care device that features easily replaceable components.

Cole is currently the president of the Energy and Environment Engineering Students’ Association, which is the student association that represents students within the energy and environment minor. Along with this, Cole serves as a Director and Chief Scholarship Mentorship Officer of The Debtless Students, a non-profit that provides scholarship, mentorship, & financial literacy resources pro bono.

In this episode, we discuss Cole’s journey to where he is today, how to fundraise effectively for pertinent causes, how to study for tests, how to apply for scholarships, how to write winning scholarship essays, how to get involved and succeed in university, how to land internships and co-op opportunities, and the next big thing in energy and sustainable practices. Have fun listening!
