The Aberdeen University Engineering Society Masquerade Ball held at Aberdeen Beach Ballroom on Thursday, 1st May, 2014 was a huge success and we would like to thank all of our sponsor companies including: Centrica Energy, Nexen, and Subsea 7 for their continued support to the society and its members; continuing to reduce the gap between industry and engineering students. Many thanks are issued to all of those who attended the Ball. You made the atmosphere and you made the night. We look forward to welcoming you all back to the Ball next year!

On 19th November, 30 Aberdeen University Engineering Students participated in a Grand Prix racing tournament at Kart-Start, Bridge of Don, Aberdeen.
It was an exciting event which was sure to unleash the competitive streak; and that it did! At the end of the day it was a great opportunity to have an extraordinary Engineering social.
The results after the grand final were as follows:

Thomas Lee from Subsea 7 attended the University of Aberdeen’s New Kings building to give a presentation on Subsea 7’s ventures and expertise in the Subsea Construction sector. The lecture not only provided an insight to the daily working life of an engineering graduate at Subsea 7, but it also represented the prosperous future ahead for the company.
The lecture itself was presented in a different style from what we usually see at EngSoc. Thomas Lee went to the great effort of producing a more technically-orientated presentation which veered away from the standard recruitment presentations which describe how to fill in gradate job applications.
Eric McEwan from Subsea 7 also attended with Thomas to provide his advice and use his expertise to answer the typical taxing questions of our more senior engineering students. Thomas and Eric stayed behind for an hour after the presentation holding discussions with the attendees. This was very much appreciated by everyone. A big thank you to the both of you (Thomas and Ewan), and Subsea 7 for making this event happen.
Subsea 7 will be conducting the second piece of their three-part series of presentations on the 20th November which will be based on ‘Pipelines’. Keep an eye out for more details on our events information box on the right hand side of the website in the next upcoming week.
On the 24th of October we had one of our company sponsors for this year, Nexen, come to the university to do a recruitment lecture. We had four really friendly and helpful members of their staff give a presentation on what it is that Nexen does and how a graduate would expect to find the company.
They went through the application process and spoke a little about what it is they look for in a candidate. After the presentation was finished, the Nexen team hung around with the students for about 45 minutes answering any questions that anyone had and giving the students a chance to enjoy the buffet that they very kindly provided.
It was a great opportunity for students to meet some of the key members of Nexen that they would be working with should they become one of their graduates. We’d like to thank Nexen very much for having the event and providing us with this fantastic opportunity.
