Here’s an overview of what the society involves and the typical activities that take place throughout the year.
What is MechEngSoc?
We’re the departmental society of Mechanical Engineering, aimed at integrating students from all years and areas of Mechanical Engineering. We also welcome anyone who is interested in Mechanical Engineering to join our Society. We organise a variety of activities and events to encourage people to share their interests in Mechanical Engineering. It’s a great opportunity for you to meet people from different backgrounds. We aim to enhance your time at the University by supporting and creating more opportunities for you to relax and socialise outside of your studies.
