Student Organizations

Engineering Council (EC)

Engineering Council at Illinois really makes a difference. This is the students' voice in the College and consists of an executive board that oversees 13 committees and more than 70 professional and honorary engineering societies.

EC events are designed to help you develop leadership skills, work closely with Engineering administration, and build a strong network of friends and peers within the College.

Engineering Council is also responsible for hosting the Employment Expo and Engineering Open House. Get involved by applying for the executive board, having your society join EC, or attend the many activities and events they plan during the year.
