Interested in attending an engineering conference?

Every year we, the McMaster Engineering Society, send delegates to the following conferences. These conferences are hosted by ESSCO (the Engineering Student Societies’ Council of Ontario) or the CFES (the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students), and work to connect students from across the province, or country, that are studying engineering.

Our delegations for these conferences are chosen through an application an interview process by the Delegate Selection Committee (composed of the VP External, Public Relations Coordinator(s), Chief Returning Officer, and one other MES member). Selected delegates have an opportunity to receive a 50% reimbursement for the cost of attending a closed conference by finding a way of sharing what they experienced with the McMaster Engineering Community. To find out when applications come out follow the MES on Facebook and sign up for the Conferences Mail Out here.
