All engineers are encouraged to join an engineering club. Getting a degree in engineering is an incredible feat, but don’t bank on book smarts alone. Joining a club will get you experience in leadership, teamwork, and time management. Many of the projects you will work on, and skills you gain, will be transferable to your resume aka bragging rights (especially if you opt to volunteer on a club executive council). And best of all, you will make many connections and new friends. So what are you waiting for? Sign up for one of these engineering clubs today!

Blank Canvas Collective

In short, we provide part-time internships. Here’s the reason why we do this: Taking 4 years of undergraduate course does not tell you what your life will be like after you graduate. Understanding what you want is a journey and too often do we find ourselves realizing this too late. The goal of Blank Canvas Collective is to provide the opportunity for you to gain experience that is necessary to find and pursue your passion and career aspiration. By gaining experience in different industries and workplaces, we compare to understand our preferences and make better choices. We provide the opportunity to gain real-world experience to undergraduate and graduate students through providing innovative and multi-disciplinary projects from the industry.

Canadian Satellite Design Challenge

CSDC@YorkU is a York University student club united in the goal to participate in the Geocentrix Technologies Canadian Satellite Design Challenge and to win an opportunity to send a satellite into space. The Canadian Satellite Design Challenge provides a platform for learning and experimenting for the thirteen contesting Canadian universities. York University has a long history of space exploration and development including several current projects dedicated to space advancement such as YUsend, the Phoenix mission, the York University Rover Team and SEDS@York. CSDC@YorkU is competing in this new contest with great expectations and in the hope of setting another honorable advancement for the university’s space research.

IEEE – YorkU Chapter

We are trying to get an IEEE student chapter set up at YorkU. If interested in getting it started up, please contact Professor Amir Asif.

Engineers Without Boarders – YorkU Chapter

An EWB chapter is restarting at YorkU this year. Please contact eng-soc for more information at info@engsocyu.com

Robot Fighting at YorkU

This year the robot fighting club aims to compete in RoboGames. Our aim is to crush the competition for fame and glory. We are in need of hard-working fire-driven student leaders. Technical experience is not a must – you will learn what you need to when required. On the side members may also do robotic-simulation programming challenges, and also some local inter-university competitions (~cool stuff~). We teach our members to build light-weight robots which is now easier than ever using club tools, circuit templates, code, and PCBs.

SEDS

SEDS is a student-based, independent organization which seeks to promote the exploration and development of space.

SEDS works to achieve this objective by educating students and the general public about the advaces currently being made in this field; along with its benefits to humanity, and the ethical concerns surrounding its development.

York University Rover Team

The team spends the months from September to June researching, building, testing and finally competing against other universities with a rover that can compete against other universities and a variety of competitons. Our mission it is to develop a Rover prototype able to perform tasks with a remote operator on a simulated extraterrestrial surface.
