Engineering Student Council

ESC is a student-run organization at Oregon State University working to coordinate and support the activities of engineering student organizations, and the students therein. ESC is the single point of reference in the College of Engineering between faculty, staff, and students for resources pertaining to the creation of new student organizations and the operation of existing ones (policies regarding funding, fundraising, travel, events). ESC is committed to helping engineering organizations and individuals reach their full potential through professional advancement workshops and outreach events.

-- What We Do --

Host Events

Engineering Council promotes and develops students and student organizations for success through on-campus events. Check out our cool student organizations every fall at Cookies and Clubs, or perhaps join us to celebrate the discipline of engineering during E-Week!

Facilitate Meetings

The ESC facilitates two General Body Meetings, mandatory for all SSOs during Week 2 & 6 at 6 PM. Here, the officers will share updates, solicit feedback, and more. These meetings are valuable as the ESC shares various support and resources for club officers and leaders to recruit, develop, and retain their members.

Funding Square

Organize Funding

Looking for funding from OSU's college of engineering? We've got you covered. Our yearly funding process allows student organizations to receive funding on the basis of activity reporting and participation within SSOs. Check out the funding page to learn more about applying for funding.
