About the Engineering Student Council

The Engineering Student Council is a non-profit educational service organization intended to serve the following purposes:

  • -to better the engineer's experience at the University of Maryland
  • -to establish a secure community for all engineering students
  • -to promote individual society events and to coordinate multi-society events promoting engineering
  • -to obtain a united student voice with the administration on issues of policy and curriculum
  • -to complete the engineering education process by instilling a sense of pride and accomplishment in graduates


The Engineering Student Council is primarily composed of representatives from Engineering societies and elected ESC officers and chairpersons. The ESC also includes at-large students, especially those that assist with general Engineering events. Together, there are about 30-40 active ESC members that represent and serve a student body of over 3,000 undergraduate engineering students.

To fulfill our mission, the ESC organizes several high-profile events for the general engineering student body. Our signature annual events include the Engineering Fall Ball, Engineers Week Celebration, and Maryland Day Design Competition.

ESC is proud to be a part of the National Association of Engineering Student Councils. NAESC is the collective organization of engineering student councils from universities all across the United States. To visit NAESC's website, please click here.
