What is WESST
WESST is BESST
The Western Engineering Student Societies' Team (WESST) is an alliance of engineering student societies across western Canada. We consist of twelve member societies from eleven engineering programs.
WESST helps its member societies share expertise on organizing events, managing budgets and services for undergraduate engineering students.
Why Do We Exist?
WESST provides an environment for member schools to exchange information and resources for the benefit of student leaders across western Canada. It also provides as unified voice of engineering students in Western Canada, representing its member schools to other student societies, industry, professional associations, and to the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students (CFES).
Current WESST Executive
A Brief History
WESST was formalized in 1993, at the Western Engineering Competition and Conference hosted by the University of Saskatchewan, when student representatives from all the accredited Western Canadian Engineering Schools within four provinces decided on the need to form an alliance of all their undergraduate students’ societies.
