WHAT IS WESST
The Western Engineering Student Societies' Team (WESST) is an alliance of engineering student societies across western Canada. We consist of eleven member societies from eleven engineering programs.
WESST helps its member societies share expertise on organizing events, managing budgets and services for undergraduate engineering students.
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).
WESST was formalized in 1993 at the Western Engineering Competition, hosted by the University of Saskatchewan.
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.
