Who We Are
Formed in 1897, the Engineering Society of Queen’s University is one of the oldest representative bodies for engineering students in Canada and continues to be a leader in student initiatives. With over 3000 members currently staying on campus, 15,000 active alumni living throughout the world, and an annual budget of $1.9 million, EngSoc oversees some fifty-eight student-run initiatives ranging from design projects to services to fun social events.
Each of these groups operates as a real-world business. The students learn everything from business plans to fund-raising, from menu planning to decoration. These ventures develop many “soft skills” such as how to work in multidisciplinary groups and make business decisions in the real world. It is through these initiatives that students are taught to care for people and for the environment, and to act in ways that are healthy and sustainable. By exposing our members to social, environmental, diversity, and development issues through the various clubs, groups, and corporations affiliated with the Society, we help produce engineers that are more prepared for the global community.
We pride ourselves on offering something for everyone, no matter how diverse your interests are. Please take a look through the website and see what interest you; whether you are a potential student, current student, or alumnus. Our job is to make sure we arm students with the necessary out of class skills to cut it in any line of work, and make sure we have fun doing it!
