WELCOME TO THE DMU ENGINEERING SOCIETY
WHO ARE WE?
As a society, we aim to provide an inclusive environment that allows all students of the university, who are interested in engineering, to expand their network. Like-minded people will be able to more easily share ideas, learn from each other, and collaborate on projects— developing a community that creates numerous opportunities. Our society helps broaden a student's social and academic development, and with this, members can get help and advice from their peers. In our society, we would discuss topics and create projects that would be in the best interests of everyone involved. Members are also introduced to DMU Racing and IMechE Leictershire Young Members Panel; those interested would be encouraged to join these groups, as well.
UKSEDS is a unique organisation run entirely by students and young professional volunteers, and part of an international SEDS movement that includes sister organisations in the USA, Canada, India, and many other countries. The society is affiliated with UKSEDS (UK Students for the Development and Exploration of Space). UKSEDS is the United Kingdom’s national student space society that, for over 30 years, have been supporting students and young professionals across the country by running events, providing resources, and teaching them new skills. Their most famous event is the National Student Space Conference (NSSC), which they first held in 1989. This year they had people from space agencies such as NASA and JAXA give talks at their conference, which was sponsored by renowned companies like Airbus and Skyrora. They also hold competitions that run in collaboration with leading companies and give students valuable technical and transferable skills.

Annual Membership: £4
Our annual membership fee supports the funding of our events and activities throughout the year. Membership can be bought at any point in the year, and all memberships will expire at the end of the 2022/23 academic year.
By expressing interest in our society, you will be added to our mailing list until the end of November 2022 so that you get to hear about all that we're doing as a society. If you decide you're interested in what we do and would like to join in, you will need to pay for membership.
If you have ideas for projects you would be interested in doing, speak out to our committee members. We hold meetings where everyone shares their thoughts and ideas to plan better for upcoming projects. Announcements will be posted on our social media accounts. Society meetings would be every Wednesday from 16:00-18:00 at the Queen's Building, Q3.01 unless stated otherwise.
