Student societies

Our active and successful student societies form an integral part of our community; providing an avenue for students to interact with one another, supplement their studies and engage with alumni and industrial contacts.

Are you a current student? Then join your student society today. If you have started a new society, have changed the details of a society or we have missed one, then please let us know.

A graduate or recruiter? Then we would be very happy to help you get involved. Please email us at eps-community@contacts.bham.ac.uk.

EPS Societies' Awards

In spring 2014 the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences launched the first ever EPS Societies Awards to celebrate the outstanding work of our student societies. These Awards act as a reminder of the hard work and dedication undertaken by students to make the University a better, more vibrant place to study and play. The College thanked all those involved for their hard work and recognise their achievements with a spectacular black-tie dinner and BAFTA-style awards ceremony on Friday 6 June.

Winners, photographs and more information is available at: www.birmingham.ac.uk/eps/societiesawards

The society is free for all students in the School and combines social events with a range of career-related events (such as industrial trips). The School is relatively small in terms of student numbers and so the society is focused on improving the overall student experience as much as it possibly can!
