The Engineering Master’s Student Council (EMSC) is a student council comprised of student leaders from our various engineering master’s programs and departments. The council works in partnership with Graduate Student Programs and Services to enhance the student experience by providing academic, networking, social, and professional development opportunities. They are also called upon to represent the engineering master’s community on a variety of University-wide committees and focus groups. 

Our leaders have the opportunity to develop invaluable skills by working effectively as a team, problem-solving, event planning, and interacting with staff, faculty, and alumni.
