Engage the World and Beyond

The Satellite Design Team is designing, building and launching a satellite into space with the Canadian Space Agency. They also work with high altitude balloons and organize community outreach events to inspire children with their projects.

The Faculty of Applied Sciences is home to a number of student societies, groups and teams that host networking events, mentorship programs, competitions, community outreach events, career fairs, and industry field trips. Some of our competitive teams also build projects for national and international challenges. These connections and experiences will last beyond your undergraduate years.

Team Phantom members are building a zero-emissions race car to compete at the Formula SAE Electric competition in the U.S. They also attend community events to promote the importance of sustainable transportation.
Team Guardian members build unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), participate in competitions and complete challenges such as locating a lost hiker in a remote area.
The Sustainable Energy Engineering Student Society (SEESS) advocates sustainability practices in societal activities while supporting and connecting undergraduate students through events and opportunities.
The Computing Science Student Society (CSSS) organizes multiple events including a trip to Silicon Valley for students to tour tech companies and meet leaders in the field.
Every year the Engineering Science Student Society (ESSS) organizes the Opportunities Fair, or OpFair, where all students from the Faculty of Applied Sciences can directly connect with employers in their fields.
Women in Computing Science (WiCS) and Women in Engineering (WiE), which comprise students of all genders, are dedicated to promoting women in the technology and engineering fields. In addition to mentorship and industry events for students, they also organize workshops to introduce high school girls to these fields.
