Student Groups

No matter what your passions or goals may be, FEAS has a student group just for you. From advocating on behalf of your classmates, to honing your electronics or networking skills, you’ll find community and opportunity in a FEAS chapter, course union or interest group.

Want to start your own student group? 

To start your own engineering group, follow the instructions as outlined on the RESS website, external link. For architecture groups, contact arc.soc, external link through their website.

A chapter shares the same mission and values as their larger parent organization, but operates independently at Ryerson.
