Who We Are

The McMaster Engineering & Management Society (MEMS) is run by an executive of elected students who represent its members – students of the Engineering & Management program.

We host a number of exciting event and activities for students in E&M. Our events range in the genre of professional development, networking, career and skill development, and of course we can't forget social!

We look forward to meeting you at all of our events! Please feel free to contact us if you have any comments, concerns or feedback. Do not hesitate to reach out if you want to get involved with the society.

Meet The Team

MEMS is run by a dynamic group of students from varying engineering backgrounds.

“I joined MEMS to be able to act as a liaison between E&M students and the faculty. Ever since I received help from an upper year student in the program, I wanted to help people enjoy the program and give back.”

“I joined MEMS because I wanted to help in guiding other Engineering and Management students to the great opportunities the program has to offer. The Engineering and Management program is one of a kind, and thus comes with unique benefits that we, as E&M students, should take advantage of.”

“I joined MEMS because I want to help build a stronger community between Engineering and Management students. We are in a very fortunate position to be able to meet and connect with people across all streams of engineering and we should be taking advantage of that.”

“I joined MEMS because I wanted to promote and inform other management students what the stream has to offer and why it is so special. E&M is made up of students from various streams, allowing us to meet and make connections with people that are not within our respective streams. This provides ample opportunities for personal and professional development that will be applicable in the future. ”

“Being a part of MEMS for the past four years has been more than rewarding. As the president of a student run team, with all the different engineering streams together, I have been able to grasp a better understanding of the overall picture of management and what the program can do for the students in it. I encourage all management students to get involved with MEMS in some capacity!””

Why Management

The B.Eng.Mgmt at McMaster is the only one of its kind in Canada. It has proven to be a wonderful additional year of regular engineering studies in order to get a better understanding of business and to develop your leadership skills and experience. Not only do you complete all courses for an undergraduate engineering degree, you also will complete all mandatory courses for a bachelors commerce degree. On top of that, you will take 3 unique Engineering & Management core courses, one of which will be a full industry partner capstone.

Students who are interested to being admitted apply to the program in the spring at the end of the Engineering 1 program in their first year. The program often has a highly competitive entrance average, as under 140 students are admitted to the program each year.

All students who complete Engineering 1 are entitled to apply for the Engineering & Management program through their account on Mosaic. Unfortunately, iBiomed (including Chem Bio. and Elec Bio.), Computer Science, and Bachelor of Technology students are not qualified to apply. To be considered, students must also have completed Economics 1B03 (Microeconomics) as one of their complementary electives with a minimum grade of 5.0 (63%). An interview may also be required to assess a student’s qualifications for the program.

With the degree, there are several perks including:

  • Qualifying for an accelerated MBA
  • Starting salary premium after graduation
  • Prepare for roles in project management and corporate leadership
  • More rapid progression to senior management positions
  • Higher rates of employment after graduation

Students admitted into the program will be required to take the following courses on top of their full engineering courseload:
