Macquarie University Engineering Society
MQES has been formed based on a perceived need for a higher level of student investment in Engineering activities, for self-directed learning, and for student level professional development.
The society intends to contribute to Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) sessions and organise academic workshops in order to help improve the academic performance of students, improve student retention and completion rates. There is also a focus to increase communication between the various year groups through inter-society networking. Additionally in the medium term it is intended to facilitate extra curricular design projects, practical skill building workshops, and professional development programs.
The long term the goal of MQES is to create a student community that helps students develop practical skills, improve academic performance through PAL and workshops, and foster professional skills that will help students secure internships and graduate jobs.
