Teams & Clubs
The Engineering Society is host to fourteen design teams and numerous clubs, committees and conferences - nearly all of which are completely student-run. Each engages undergraduate engineering students to solve challenging problems, push the boundaries of traditional engineering and, most importantly, to have fun and meet new people.
From solar houses to autonomous sailboats to satellites in space, design teams offer an extensive range of opportunities for students to be involved outside of the classroom and augment their technical knowledge with hands-on experience. Perhaps more importantly, students learn to work together with their peers in a team setting and work towards a common goal, whatever it may be. Many design teams compete at a high level in national and international competitions.
Clubs, perhaps even more broad in focus, are full of opportunities. Discuss what’s on your mind - from international development to gender identity issues to women in engineering - with people who share your passion.
Conferences are a great way to extend into the professional realm of engineering. At the conferences offerered around Queen's you will get to have the opportunity to meet with industry, listen to exceptional speakers, and even participate in a case challenge!
Teams, conferences and clubs are open to any undergraduate engineering student (and often open to any faculty) regardless of year, discipline or experience. The only requirements are a keen interest and a little bit of time. With this kind of extracurricular choice, there truly is something for everyone.
Questions about teams, clubs and other student initiatives can be directed to the group contacts listed in their respective sections, or to Mark Godin, Vice-President (Student Development) for the Queen’s Engineering Society at firstname.lastname@example.org.
