The Society

CUES - Who we are and what we do

C.U.E.S. is lead by a voluntary committee of students. In an annual election, any student member of the engineering department may put forward their name for one of the committee positions, provided it is seconded by two other members of the department. Those elected by the CUES membership form the committee who, with advise from the sponsors and faculty members, run the society.
