Mission Statement

Wisconsin Engineering Student Council (WESC) exists as the governance body representing the undergraduate students of the College of Engineering (CoE), in order to foster cooperation and communication among students, student organizations, CoE, and University of Wisconsin-Madison. WESC acts as a bridge between students and administration, by providing open forums for discussion, while also organizing engineering events.

WESC provides an avenue for student opinion in the daily and long term plans for the College of Engineering. Through an open forum, students and student organizations can discuss their ideas for improvement in the CoE, knowing that the power exists to enact their ideas. WESC is a network for information, resources, and funding, providing students and student organizations a means to accomplish their goals. Through WESC's own college wide and campus wide events, WESC hopes to foster camaraderie and collaboration. 

How to get involved:
