This year’s C&G performance is GREASE the ENGINEERING MUSICAL, and we are looking for a Props Manager. It is an engineering adaption of Grease including songs: “A Job is All I Want”, “Summer Labs”, “Engineer Dropout” and many more, with enough aggie/farming/midterm/prof/THRN jokes to last a life time. This year’s play will also feature 2 of our very own favourite profs in their second role in Cheers and Gears.

Email Vienna if you want to help out:



The meeting will likely happen during week 4 or week 5. Request forms are available on the EngSoc website as well as additional Information: Lab fund forms are due the week before the meeting. This is largely targeted at upper years

We are looking for submissions for the January issue! Please send them to as soon as possible – if they don’t make it in the January issue, then it will get published in the February issue! Send pictures or articles on any topic you want (appropriate please) of 250-300 words



Please remember to anonymously submit any feedback in the Academic Feedback Box in the EngSoc Office. All feedback is important in improving our education. Positive feedback is encouraged! Or submit your feedback to this link


Please note that this is any feedback, it does not have to be solely academic related.


You put in feedback and we listened!

A few weeks ago you may have filled out an online survey asking about which electives caused conflicts with your ENGG courses.

They have now made a change and have chosen the top 5 demanded electives for BIOMEDS, MECHS and BIOS and will make sure they don’t cross over the with ENGG core courses in future years.


If you have any questions please email


12. PIZZA!

Pizza day will continue every Friday at 11:30am in the atrium! Pizza is $1.50 per slice and will have a variety of options to choose from, including vegetarian. 

Bring your friends and enjoy some of the lowest going rates of pizza you can find!


That’s all for now folks, stay in school.
