The McMaster Sumobot Club is a robotics organization that challenges students to design their own autonomous fighting robots, which are pitted against each other in tournament-style, one-on-one wrestling matches.
Our Competition gives students a fun, well-rounded, and informative challenge. They must work in teams of four, developing key communication skills as they master the mechanical, electrical, and software systems needed to construct a fighting robot.

Custom Vehicle Team
MecVT is the group responsible for creating and maintaining unique Engineering vehicles to promote McMaster Engineering. Our current vehicles such as Carpool 3, the Project Racecar, the Festiva, the Rally Car Project, and Mod Max Shelley can and will be seen at many Engineering events.
We Can Do Everything with Anything
There is no skill needed to join the group, it’s all about learning and being awesome! If you want to build something questionable, interesting, cool, slightly dangerous, or just learn how to change brakes on a car, join our group. We are always welcoming new members to bring new ideas, new skills, and just a helping hand whenever they can.
Please e-mail us at: email@example.com for more details and to get on the MecVT mailing list!
National Society of Black Engineers
The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is a student run non-profit organization, founded in the United States with the mission statement “to increase the number of culturally responsible Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community”. Since then, the organization has grown to over 30,000 members world-wide with a broader mission which includes Science Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields, as well as other minority groups. NSBE Mac provides an environment for its members to develop the intangible skills and networks necessary to be successful students and professionals. This is done through speaker and networking events, job search advice and skill development events, socials and an annual National Convention which brings together over 8000 members every March. We also provide opportunities for member to volunteer at local high schools. Some of our events include FIFA night, Resume Critique, Games Night. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Movie Nights
- Diversity in Engineering Professionalism Events
- Collaborations with Ryerson EngOUT, UofT LGBTQase, and other Engineering schools across Ontario
EQ will also be hosting an Inclusivity workshop run by our Co-Presidents, and would be more than happy to provide you and your club with resources and workshop information.
We encourage any and all students interested in helping out, attending our events, or learning more to email us at email@example.com, ‘like’ us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter!
The McMaster Women In Engineering Society
The McMaster Women in Engineering Society is focused on creating a society where female identified engineering students feel empowered and supported throughout their education, as well as providing them with opportunities to network with other students and grow as individuals. It is important to us to organize professional development activities as well as social events. The McMaster WIE Society is dedicated to encouraging female identified students in all levels of their education to enter engineering through on campus events as well as outreach opportunities.
To learn more, check out the official McMaster WIE Society Facebook Page.
The McMaster Engineering Musical is an original musical production made entirely by undergraduate engineers! The show takes place every year in March. They take an existing movie, musical or book and use the theme to make a comedy show that incorporates life as an engineering student at McMaster. Existing songs are taken from a variety of genres with the lyrics rewritten to fit the show.
The cast is made up of 20-25 students. They sing, dance, act and put on an amazing show. The band welcomes all instruments from guitar to horns to strings. Auditions for both take place at the end of September.
Members of the crew are responsible for creating props, painting backgrounds and controlling the lights and sound. The writing crew is given the task of writing a hilarious script. All are welcome!
They sing, they dance, they play instruments, and they put on a show that simply blows people away. The McMaster Engineering Musical shows that engineers are not only good at crunching numbers, but we also possess an outstanding amount of creative talent within our faculty.
Engineers Without Borders
Engineers Without Borders strives to make McMaster University students the most knowledgeable on the complexities of International Development, create awareness and have positive impact in the Hamilton Community. Every year, we focus our energy on tackling issues concerning our community and developing nations, and implement positive change in Canada and in five African countries.
Our projects include Leadership Development, Food Systems, the Global Engineering Conference and more. Through these projects, we aim to equip McMaster University students to bring people and ideas together in order to tackle the crucial causes poverty and inequality. We invest in people and ignite change, thereby fostering a strong community of global citizens.
