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, 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.
We have been very busy on the external front of late and I would like to tell you about one of the things we have recently been able to complete after a few weeks of working on it. As stated in previous posts we have been planning a few things to promote National Engineering Month and one of those was the Province wide Rube Goldberg machine. A small group of super awesome volunteers put countless hours into constructing a complicated machine to do a simple task.
In our case that task was to recieve a signal via cell phone and then send a message to another school via the internet to start their machine. The video of our creation can be found here:
Hello Wonderful people, I have a quick update for you all about what has been happening in the world of ESSCO! If you have forgotten, ESSCO is the Engineering Student Societies Council of Ontario and is more or less the Ontario EngSoc of EngSoc’s. All of the Engineering schools in Ontario are a member and they facilitate conferences, discussion and a representation.
The ESSCO council is made up of all of the VP-External’s of all of the schools and we meet once a month in teleconference form in order to discuss what ESSCO executive have been up to and anything that needed to be discussed. I (Lisa was there too) attended the February Teleconference on Wednesday February 22 2012 and other then general administrative stuff here is what was discussed.
I have some exciting news about updates to POETS! We will be getting new coffee shop style tables and chairs for the upstairs of POETS (to the right when you go up the stairs). The furniture is a grad gift from the graduating class, so a big thanks to that graduating class! You can be expecting the furniture in the next 6-8 weeks.
Hello all you beautiful people
I hope you are all having a great reading week! This blog post will be a quickie, so bear with me.
As you may or may not know, Professional Engineers Ontario is broken up into 36 local chapters which all contain a board of directors and volunteer engineers who try and promote Engineering within their local communities. Our local chapter is called the Grand River Chapter and services Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambidge and Guelph.
