Saskatoon Engineering Students' Society (SESS)
Engineering Graduate Community Council (EGCC)
Student Discipline Groups
We are an extremely active student branch of the IEEE, based at the University of Saskatchewan. Our branch was first established in 1957. We handle all the social, academic, and charitable needs of the Electrical and Computer Engineering undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Saskatchewan.
Student Design Teams
The Steel Bridge Design Team or Bridge City Bridge Team is a Civil Engineering student group that builds 1:10 scaled bridges with steel. We will then compete with our design at an international level against other Colleges. we conduct our own design, analysis, and construction of bridge based on the criteria outlined in the current year rules provided by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

If you have a passion for aviation, or love to design, build, and fly planes, or want to gain technical and soft skills that will look amazing on your resume, or all of the above, then this could be for you!
Each year the team designs and builds a complete tractor prototype by implementing innovative elements to prove on the success of previous years. Apart from the competition specified engine and rear tires, the entire design strategy and responsibility is in the hands of the team.
The USST is a team of more than 30 students from multiple colleges who share a passion for space and space-related technologies. The team is currently working on its Mars rover project, which regularly competes internationally, as well as its CubeSat project that is expected to launch into space in 2021.
