Engineering Undergraduate Society (EUS)

The Engineering Undergraduate Society (EUS) is the coordinating body and voice of undergraduate students in the Faculty of Engineering. All students registered in the Faculty of Engineering automatically become members of the EUS. The EUS plays very active roles in enhancing all aspects of student life in the Faculty, including social events, sports, volunteerism, competitions and academics. The EUS also oversees the student societies of Engineering departments:

Architecture Students Association (ASA)   
Canadian Society of Chemical Engineering McGill Student Chapter (CSChE)

Promoting Opportunities for Women in Engineering (POWE)

POWE is a student run, philanthropic group under the Engineering Undergraduate Society of McGill University. Our goals are to encourage the presence of women in engineering and to increase awareness about the amazing contributions women have made to engineering. We also work to inform young women about the many career opportunities available to them in the field of engineering through on-campus activities, a high school outreach program, and various fundraisers.

Our main event is an annual conference for future women in engineering, which invites girls from high school and CGEP to McGill for a day. At the conference, the girls are able to experience what it is like to be a girl in engineering through campus tours, a design competition and addresses from students and professors from all departments of engineering. The goals of the conference are

To encourage young girls coming from high school to pursue a higher education in engineering.
To promote the equal opportunities which exist for women in the field of engineering.

We believe the Conference gives students a great introduction to engineering and an opportunity to identify with female engineers. It is equally rewarding for us as we have the chance to pass on information we have learned over the years and help foster the growth of future women in engineering. If you are interested in registering for this conference, please visit our website and fill in the online registration form.

Through our website, we hope to make our committee more accessible to students at McGill who want to get involved, students at other schools and institutions who are interested in our activities, and women in engineering who are interested in helping us with our mission. If you are interested in POWE in any way, shape, or form, check back from time to time to see what we’re up to or send us an email , and get involved!

National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)

The mission of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is to increase the number of culturally responsible students who excel academically to also succeed professionally and thereby make a positive impact in the community. Our objectives are to stimulate and develop interest in engineering, sciences and business. We encourage members to seek advanced degrees in their fields and to obtain professional registrations. NSBE's activities include tutorial programs, group study sessions, high school/junior high outreach programs, technical seminars and workshops, a national communication network (NSBENET), two national magazines (NSBE Magazine and the NSBE Bridge), an internal newsletter, a professional newsletter (The Career Engineer), resumé books, career fairs, awards, banquets and an annual national convention.

Architecture Students' Association (ASA)

The Architecture Students' Association is a non-profit student-run society within the School of Architecture. As a McGill Architecture student, you are automatically a member of the ASA. The society serves as an organizational body for student activities and affairs, a voice for students in academic and university issues at McGill, and a link between other schools of architecture across the country. Chaired by the President, the ASA is run by an Executive Council, which is composed of five Vice President portfolios: External, Academic, University, Internal and Finance. Each class also elects a student Representative to sit on the Council, which meets biweekly.

National Organization for Business & Engineering (NOBE)

Ever found yourself thinking that there must be more to life than calculus and 14-page formula sheets? Being an engineer doesn’t mean you need to spend the rest of your days drudging over projects in a cubicle! Being an engineer can mean starting a business as an entrepreneur, tackling strategic problems as a consultant, figuring out how to get the world's economy in order as an investment banker, or finding creative ways to sell products as a marketer!

We are the National Organization for Business and Engineering (NOBE) and we strive to give engineering students the opportunity to explore potential career paths in business! Most of the advanced problem solving and qualitative work you perform throughout your degree will teach you to do one thing: think critically. And guess what - the world of business needs a lot more of that.

Develop your soft skills through our WORKSHOPS were we go over everything from crafting the perfect resume (for whatever your target internship in business), to our BLANK for Dummies series where professionals from consulting, finance, accounting and everything in-between go over the basics of their industries. NETWORK with recruiters and professionals from top tier companies like McKinsey, Accenture, the Boston Consulting Group, Amazon, Apple and L’Oreal to learn about their internship opportunities. Finally - get hands on experience with our annual CASE COMPETITION, the NOBE Business Case Competition (NBCC), just for engineering students! Whether you’re a beginner or a case cracking pro, our competition serves the engineering community by giving them feedback from actual consultants.
