Cambridge University Engineering Society (CUES)
CUES is a student-run, University-wide society with over 1,000 active members and several thousand alumni. Its role is to organise events that will give its members a taste of the wider world of engineering, as well as a chance to get to know other students in Cambridge and beyond.
Membership of CUES costs £10 for one year or just £15 for life, entitling you to attend any of the CUES events such as: site visits all over the UK and social events such as annual dinners, garden parties and trips to the National Space Centre. You will also be eligible to apply for CUES grants to undertake worthwhile engineering-related activities. CUES also organise the only dedicated engineering careers fair at the university in Michaelmas term.
All CUES events are free, or at least heavily subsidised, by our industrial sponsors such as AECOM, ARM, BP, Rolls Royce, Shell and many more. At the start of each term you will receive the CUES magazine, "The Cambridge Engineer", along with weekly email updates about our events and interesting opportunities such as jobs, awards and scholarship programmes.
To join you will need to visit the CUES website and click on "Membership". Alternatively, to make this easy for you, CUES have a stand in the foyer of the Engineering Department on registration day, the same day you come in to pick up your databooks and other equipment. On this day only, you will also receive a goodie bag of freebies from our sponsors as well as a CUES mug, and a freshers' edition of the magazine.
For more information check out the CUES website. You can also buy CUES hoodies. They can be ordered from the freshers' stand too.
