Lounge Location: EITC E1-516 

The Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME) was founded in 1970 in order to form a single organization "with a clear national identity" for Canadian mechanical engineers. 

Student membership costs only $20 per year for membership in CSME and $20 per year for a lounge membership; members receive access a lounge, access to an archive of old exams and tests, and a subscription to the CSME newsletter. There are also opportunities to take part in various CSME student competitions and reduced registration fees to CSME professional conferences and seminars for student members.

The UMCSME offers Engineering students opportunities to explore both mechanical and general engineering in Manitoba through various events including industry tours. Acting as a liaison between the Mechanical Engineering department and the undergraduates of the Mechanical Engineering program, we strive to enhance the academic and professional experiences and overall successes of each student. We also offer opportunities for students to expand beyond Manitoba through a number of nationwide conferences covering topics such as composites and biomedical technology. Our members range from 1st year to final year students, making CSME a great environment for knowledge transfer.

In addition to opportunities for academic growth, the U of M chapter of CSME offers a tightly-knit community of students who understand that a few BEvERages and relaxation are needed after long days and nights of schoolwork. Each term CSME holds a PUB crawl or social to encourage students to kick back and relax before the onset of midterms. Announcements related to Mechanical Engineering news, events, etc. will be made to all Mechanical students throughout the year, but if you would like access to our exclusive CSME events (sign-up required) please provide us with your email address and we’ll contact you soon!

The Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) was founded 1887 to help develop and maintain high standards of Civil Engineering practice in Canada while also enhancing the public image of the profession. CSCE aims to encourage research and study in all branches of knowledge related to Civil Engineering, and to encourage the exchange of information among members of CSCE. 

The major annual event CSCE is involved in is the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race. GNCTR involves the racing of a 300 lb concrete toboggan carrying 5 students down a hill at speeds over 50 km/hr. In 2009, U of M finished 1st, taking home the honour of World's Greatest Concrete Toboggan.

The Canadian Society for Biosystems Engineers chapter at the University of Manitoba is located in E1-519. The 2013/2014 year brought major changes to our group as a small number of members took it upon themselves to refurbish our space. From that point forward we aimed to bring back activities from the Biosystems department’s past such as the annual BBQ, which last year showed the largest attendance ever. This year we hope to add industry tours to help students make connections within the engineering industry as well as to hold at least one social. 

In addition to making connections with industry partners, members are given access to the upstairs lounge. Last year saw the replacement of all the furniture, as well as the addition of a high-power gaming computer, new printer and 50-inch flat screen TV for member use. Whether you are in your 1st year trying to decide on a department or in your graduating year, the CSBE lounge is a great place to come make friends who are going through the same courses that you are.

The University of Manitoba student branch of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (UMIEEE) is a non­-profit organization managed by a team of dedicated student volunteers. Our mission is to provide students with the space and equipment necessary to maximize learning opportunities and enhance education.

UMIEEE strives to engage students through workshops and networking events which allow students to enrich their knowledge and develop their professional communication skills. Each academic year we host a handful of technical workshops about the Arduino and Raspberry Pi embedded devices as well as the typesetting language LaTeX. We also host multiple networking events each semester in which professional engineers practicing electrical and computer engineering are invited to speak about their careers and experiences in industry. 

UMIEEE maintains a laboratory environment consistent with the Electrical and Computer Engineering labs operated by the University of Manitoba, enabling students to expand their knowledge outside of the classroom. Furthermore, UMIEEE offers a generous lounge space in which students can work, socialize, and relax.
