Get Involved

There are many different engineering-related groups on campus – learn more about how to get involved and make a difference.

Alpha Omega Epsilon (AOE)

Alpha Omega Epsilon is a professional sorority for women in engineering and technical sciences. The Sisters of Alpha Omega Epsilon promote personal growth in the areas of friendship, leadership and professionalism. Through everyday interactions – as well as social, philanthropic and professional events – the sorority creates an environment in which all members may flourish. Attend events or become a sister!

EUS

The Engineering Undergraduate Society supports the academic, professional and social needs of engineering students. An entirely student-led organization, EUS provides academic support, financial assistance to student groups, and professional development for engineering students. Students are encouraged to get involved with the society and have an incredible impact on other engineering students. Whether you take on an executive position or volunteer at an event, there’s a position for everyone. Link: https://ubcengineers.ca/

Gears and Queers

Gears and Queers is an LGBTQ+ engineering club dedicated to creating an open, accepting space for queer engineering students at UBC. We strive to build and support a community for queer engineering students and provide a positive safe space on the UBC campus through social and professional events and a visible presence in engineering student life. Gears and Queers is also open to our non-queer allies (fondly known as “Gears”). Link: https://www.facebook.com/pg/gearsandqueers/about/?ref=page_internal
