Student Groups

Get out there

Student groups and clubs are a great way for first and second year undergrads in particular to connect with students and colleagues throughout the faculty. It’s the perfect way to round-out your education – while making some lifelong friends along the way.   

Engineering Science Student Society (ESSS)

The ESSS provides plenty of support to get you through your courses and make university fun. This includes end-of-semester socials, trips, weekly events and job fairs. Students are informed of events and meetings through faculty email lists, as well as posters around the campuses. The ESSS also holds FROSH events every year to welcome new Engineering Science students – and you can always catch up with your fellow undergrads in the ESSS common room.
