Engineers Without Borders (EWB)
Emineers Without Borders (EWB) is dedicated to bringing people and ideas together to tackle some of the world’s most serious problems. Here in Guelph, we do that by holding meetings about topics we’re passionate about, having fun events, volunteering, and getting involved in local politics. Nationally, there are about 40 chapters across Canada that work together to create change. Internationally, we work with entrepreneurs in Sub-Saharan Africa to help support their development and create cultural exchanges between them and their Canadian counterparts.

Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR)
Since 1975 engineering students from schools across North America have been competing in the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR). The student-run competition requires teams to design, build and race a concrete toboggan downhill in a series of events. Each team constructs a toboggan weighing less than 300 lbs that can safely carry 5 riders down the competition hill. The toboggan must also include steering and braking systems that meet rigorous safety standards. Toboggans are judged on superstructure design, integration of theme, technical aspects, concrete mix and runner design, overall speed and various other performance metrics. Not only does the GNCTR give engineering students an opportunity to learn both valuable hands on and soft skills, but it also provides another front to expose North America to Guelph’s Engineering program and its partners.

Gryphon Aerospace is a new club at Guelph aiming to explore the growing Canadian aerospace sector through international design competitions and team projects. On our team, students from every discipline will develop skills in mechanical, electrical and computer engineering in a supportive team environment. In our inaugural season next fall, the team will design, test, and build an aircraft to compete against worldwide post-secondary institutions. Gryphon Aerospace believes each member offers a valuable contribution to the club and encourages anyone interested in gaining valuable hands-on experience to join.

Gryphon Racing is a team of students at the University of Guelph. Together, these students run an applied engineering and design club at that, each year, designs, builds and races an open-wheeled, high performance race car. Each year, the team travels to international competitions overseen by the Society of Automotive Engineering where hundreds of teams from around the world gather to partake in a series of events to prove their designs to industry leading engineering judges. The largest event of the season, FSAE Michigan, hosts 120 teams with over 2000 students, hundreds of volunteers and many major corporate sponsors.
