    B-Society Spring 2024 Presidential Election Results Voting for the S [24] President Election concluded on June 5th at 22:01, the initial results declared Julia Evans the victor with 308.0 votes.

Given the limited choices, […]

  • Term Overview and Farewell
    In Uncategorized
    After 16 months my Executive team and I have wrapped up our term as your A-Society Executive. It was an honour to both serve and represent our fellow undergraduate engineering students. The past year has flipped the world upside down and I have been incredibly proud of the adaptability my team demonstrated. Even though this executive term was nothing like what we expected, we were able to still keep the Society going strong, make an impact (hopefully a positive one), and we also learned a ton along the way. There is often a disconnect between what engineering students see from EngSoc on the front end and all of the work that goes in on the backend so my team and I have each written a final executive summary to record some of our biggest focuses over the past 16 months. Hopefully these […]

  • Welcome to Spring Term!
    In Uncategorized
    Hello! I have been looking forward to Spring 2020, since probably last summer. I was pumped to get back on campus and see my friends, hang out in POETS, take interesting classes, throw purple powder during Engineering Day and spend a bit too much time in the EngSoc Office. Unfortunately, a lot has changed in the world recently and we will now be attending classes online. It’s been a bit of a process over the last few weeks to accept and understand what this term means for everyone. It’s not the summer I envisioned but I can tell you with certainty that I am just as excited for it! I can’t see my friends in person, but I can see them over video chat! I can still hang out in POETS, just on the POETS channel on the EngSoc Discord server. Classes moving online gives me the […]

    Dear Engineering Students,  We’re sure you are now well aware of the University’s decision to move Spring 2020 classes online.

Many of the specifics are still to be determined.  We are working on your behalf to bring clarity to the many questions you may have over the coming weeks.  Given there is 6 weeks until the beginning of your academic or co-op term, this allows time to inform students of what is to come, and allow University leadership to make […]
