Through various Engineering social groups and organizations, students in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) have ample opportunity to meet their fellow class mates. Students share similar goals, pursuits and frustrations, thus there is a strong communal spirit which binds the students enrolled in the Faculty of Engineering's B.Eng. program. Group activities, such as social events, pub crawls, fundraisers, and group projects ensure students form lasting connections with one another. Be sure to take a few minutes to check out the websites listed below. They provide links to ECE student homepages, and Engineering extra-curricular clubs and organizations.
ENGINEERING STUDENTS SOCIETY
Perhaps, one of the more notorious groups on campus. Members of ESS can be seen pushing a car around Ring Road, collecting 'loonies' or 'cream pieing' a friend. Be sure to visit their website for more details.
IEEE STUDENT BRANCH
The IEEE Student Branch is an affiliation of the IEEE (the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) a worldwide technical professional society devoted to advancing the theory and application of electrical engineering, electronics and computing.
AUVic - University of Victoria Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Team
AUVic is a group of Mechanical, Electrical, Software and Computer Engineering students from the University of Victoria that are actively involved in building an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). An AUV is a submersible robot that is capable of completing intelligent tasks without aid from human operators.
Do you have a passion for Engineering, are you a born leader, can you articulate your thoughts and ideas to others? Science Venture is a student run organization providing hands-on science experience for children in grades 3 to 9. Over the years it has expanded to include summer science daycamps, full-day teacher's workshops, elementary school workshops, travelling roadtrips, and community science shows.
GO WEST is a youth program designed to immerse young women and men in all aspects of engineering from campus life and course offerings to industry tours and discussions with engineers, scientists, and students. It is an ideal program for high school seniors who may be thinking about studying Engineering.
