The McMaster Engineering
Society (MES) is an organized group of students representing
the engineering undergraduate student body at McMaster.
The MES acts as a link between the students and the Faculty of Engineering,
the Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO) as well as other student organizations
throughout the country such as the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students
(CFES) and the Engineering Societies Council of Ontario (ESSCO).
Each and every undergraduate engineering student is a member of the MES
and can benefit from the many events organized and services provided by
The events can be categorized as social events such as pubs and road trips,
sport events such as tournaments and ski trips, professional development
events such as conferences and speakers, and educational events such as
industry tours and workshops.
The services provided by the MES include Engineering
Co-op & Career Services (ECS - offering resume workshops,
Internship applications, international exchanges), the "productions" (the
'EngTimes' newsletter, the Student Handbook and Student Directory),
our own store called the "Drain", a brand new Engineering
Student Centre and many more.
As well, the MES is responsible for organizing Welcome Week activities
and providing first year students with a better understanding
of McMaster Engineering.
