Our Team

aboutus

The Guelph Engineering Society is a group of elected and appointed students ranging in year and program who work together to provide events, services and representation for the engineering student body. The events, both social and charitable, include Corn Roast, the Teeter-Totter-A-Thon, a curling tournament, National Engineering Week events, and the annual Banquet. Some of the services provided are printing, binding, clothing sales and affordable food sales.

 

Representation is provided on behalf of the students to different student organizations including the Engineering Students’ Societies Council of Ontario and the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students. It is also provided for various professional organizations like the Professional Engineers of Ontario, the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers and Engineers Canada. We exist to help the engineering students. If there is anything we can do for you that we aren’t doing already,  just let us know!
