MacEng Fireball Family

McMaster University's Faculty of Engineering is a community. It is a family of students, faculty members, staff and alumni. The fireball is our official symbol and is at the heart of what keeps us together. Learn more about this important symbol of McMaster Engineering pride.

Welcome Week

The #FireballFamily spirit is in full force during Welcome Week, as we invite new members into the community with a week-long celebration.

The McMaster Engineering Society (MES), one of the largest student groups on campus, supports about 20 groups and serves more than 5,000 undergraduate student members. Students are able to receive funding for various activities such as intramurals, conferences, special projects and more

The Redsuits at McMaster are student volunteers who promote engineering pride and spirit across campus and in the community. The most important job they have are as student reps during Welcome Week, where they handle all the engineering events and help first years get used to their new home at McMaster. They also participate in just about every MES event through the year, and can be seen handing out crackers during exam time, on buses to pub nights, volunteering at conferences and raising money for charity.
