Being a student is about more than just lectures, labs and tutorials. It's also about making friends, growing as a person, and having a balance between academics and extracurriculars.
EngSci students are part of a vibrant, tight-knit and supportive community, and are involved in a huge range of activities outside of the classroom.
Many dynamic student organizations within the university and U of T Engineering run social and professional development events throughout the year. You're sure to find a group to have fun, build your skills, and make friends-whether you want to build your technical skills on a design team, join the student chapter of a professional organization, perform in a music or dance group, be a social activist, play a sport, or much more.
All Engineering Science students are a part of the EngSci Club, our program's social centre. Its goal is to make your experience in EngSci the best that it can be. The club represents the student body administratively, organizes many social events like games nights, dinner dances and talent shows, and keeps the student common room stocked with pop, games, and foosball. The club fosters a strong sense of community within and between all years of study.
The Engineering Society is U of T's engineering-specific student government. Our students operate the first and the largest engineering student government in Canada. EngSoc governs the student body and organizes events, services and programs for Engineering students who happen to be the most spirited group on campus. Here you will find opportunities to join our Engineering clubs, teams, and affiliated groups, and all the information needed to get the most out of the Engineering community.
Blues Engineering is a student-driven organization that enhances the experiences of Varsity student athletes within U of T Engineering. They provide support to student athletes in their pursuit of both academic and athletic excellence. One of the most surprising aspects about being a student athlete in Engineering is learning that there are usually about 80 other Varsity athletes - quite impressive, given the academic rigour of engineering programs.
Ulife is a university-wide directory of student clubs, organizations, activities and opportunities. The thousands of entries include film appreciation clubs, debating societies, sports teams, social activism, drop-in classes, and research opportunities and awards.
Student Club Funding
The Division of Engineering Science supports a number of student groups whose work directly benefits EngSci students. If you have a student club or initiative that requires funding, you must apply through the Faculty's Centralized Process for Student Initiative Funding.
There is only one funding round each year and program's application deadline is usually in September. You will be asked to provide an impact statement, and past financial records along with projected expenses and all sources of income
