The Engineering Graduate Society (EGS) was formed in 2015 with the mandate of representing the voice and concerns of Engineering graduate students to the GSA and the University.  They are comprised of engaged departmental representatives who are tasked with opening up a two-way line of communication to their students as well as organizing valuable events and workshops which are tailored to improving the engineering graduate student experience.  These representatives sit on many Faculty and University Councils and Committees and work hard to ensure that the concerns of the engineering graduate students are heard and considered when implementing new policy. Please visit their website to view the welcome booklet for new graduate students <> to find out who your representative is and see the latest that they have been working on.

Faculty of Engineering celebrated 50 years in 2012.
