The Engineering Society is run by volunteers in a wide variety of positions. It would be impossible to list everyone who contributes to its operation, but this page includes information about many of those volunteers. To read more about each role, what that person does, and how you can contact them, expand one of the categories below.

I walk faster than any of my friends. Unfortunately, I also have no sense of direction.
I’m an MSE 1T8 hoping to specialize in nanoengineering, a full time cheese and travel enthusiast, and part-time Robarts hermit. You might recognize me if you were out at any Hi-Skule events last year!

My hometown (Collingwood, ON) is so small that instead of having destination signs on our local buses, they just say “Have a nice day!” because everyone already knows where the bus is going.
I’m a Mechanical Engineering student that’s too dependent on coffee and still deciding between manufacturing and mechatronics for a stream. My TrackOne indecisiveness never left me and if you ever expect me do exercise then I shall laugh, go buy a burger and fries and then laugh some more.
