The Engineering Student Council (ESC) serves as the student governing body of the College of Engineering, representing engineering clubs and students to the college, community, and industry. The Council works to aid and encourage the professional and social development of students within the college by planning, promoting, and financially supporting engineering student activities.
The Engineering Student Council was first organized in 1926. In October of 1992, ESC became a charter member of the National Association of Engineering Student Councils, Inc.
Our members consist of representatives from each Engineering club, a representative from each Engineering department, At-Large members, and the Executive Board members. As a member of the UA Engineering Student Council students are empowered to help make decisions and plan activities that affect all students in the College of Engineering.
What does ESC do?
Industry Exposition (iExpo) Career Fair: This campus-wide event is the largest student-run career fair at
the University of Arizona. iExpo provides students with the opportunity to meet industry recruiters, allows government agencies and private companies the chance to distribute information regarding careers at their firm, and educates students about the ways in which engineering affects their lives.
Engineers Week (eWeek): eWeek is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated engineering workforce by increasing awareness about engineering and technological careers among all university students. Week-long festivities involves a set of events run and organized by various engineering clubs, organizations, and societies within the College of Engineering.
Presidents’ Breakfast: This dinner is an opportunity for engineering club presidents to interact with the College
of Engineering Deans and academic affairs staff to learn about all of the resources available to students and clubs
within the college.
Philanthropy: Each year ESC ends eWeek with a university wide food drive to give back to the community. In
2014, ESC raised 1792 pounds of food during the food drive and raised $258.58 in 2014 during a penny war by
collecting donations. In 2016, ESC collected 3,011 lbs of food during the food drive for Casa Maria and the penny
war raised $416.75 for the local charity Ben's Bells.
Freshmen Engineering Night: A social event to welcome new students into the College of Engineering and
socialize with other freshmen engineers by playing pool, ping pong, Rock Band and arcade games.
