The Waterloo Engineering Society is a group that officially represents the interests of all engineering students to the faculty, university and beyond. We offer tons of services including: CnD, POETS Lounge, The Orifice, and several academic services such as Exam Bank and Resume Critiques. We also run dozens of social events every term to help students get out and have fun! Every engineering undergrad is a member, and everyone is welcome to participate!
Check out our calendar for the most up-to-date event listings, our facebook page or join our A-Soc mailing list or B-Soc mailing list to keep up to date on news regarding the events, student issues, and opportunities to get involved.

Title: Engineering Society Leadership Excellence Award
At the Engineering Society A Council meeting on July 24th, the Society adopted two official statements regarding the Federation of Students.
The first was a statement on the recent Engineering Counillor elections, and the second was on the recent Federation of Students General Meeting and its aftermath, and statements made by a specific Councillor and Board Member.
I, as President, was also mandated to read each of these statements at the next Federation of Students Council Meeting, which I did today (July 28th, 2013)
I’m Anson Chen, from the 2017 Geological class and two weekends ago I had the honour of attending FYIC (First Year Integration Conference) in cold Thunder Bay along with 8 other first years from our school – Aaron, Clarisse, Dhruv, Eric, Janna, Laura, Sarah-Rose and Zach – as well as ESSCO Execs Leila, David and Mike! (Waterloo, represent!)
I just got back from Montreal, where I attended the National Conference for Women in Engineering (NCWIE) as a delegate for Waterloo. Over the weekend I got the opportunity to attend several sessions, most of which were run by established women in the engineering field.
On September 16, 2012, ESSCO members voted to further research student opinion on the high school-to-University transition with regards to math and science curriculum. The research, and follow-up documentation, falls under an ESSCO initiative called the Lobbying Issues and Action Committee (LIAC) under the direction of ESSCO President, Michael Seliske.
