Who is Essco?
ESSCO is an association that represents engineering societies from 16 universities across Ontario, and acts as the link between engineering students and professional associations, academia, and government.
Since its creation in 1987, ESSCO’s goal has been to promote “unity, continuity, and visibility among Ontario engineering students”.
ESSCO also hosts four conference annually:
Each conference is an opportunity for students to meet at one ESSCO’s member schools and allows students to share best practice, discuss strengths and weaknesses of their schools, and implement positive change.
Students who attend the conferences (known as delegations) are represented by executive members of their school’s engineering society. One of the conferences, FYIC, is catered especially to first-year students, and we highly recommend applying to attend. This year, FYIC is hosted by the Lakehead University at the beginning of February."

Ever had feedback to give your faculty but wasn't sure where to voice it?
Help us help you:
ESSCO is trying to identity strengths and weaknesses across the province in engineering education so we can approach the bodies who can make a change with empirical data.
The Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) is the voice of the engineering profession in Ontario. We advance the professional and economic interests of our members by advocating with governments, offering valued member services, and providing opportunities for ongoing professional development.
The CFES empowers member societies and enhances the student experience by providing bilingual opportunities which foster the development of leadership, Professional and Ethical Qualities, Engineering Identity, Technical Proficiency and Communication. They provide representation on issues relevant to Engineering students in Canada and support free exchange of ideas between schools.
