The Western Engineering Students’ Societies Team (WESST) is an alliance of all the engineering undergraduate students’ societies in western Canada. For the last 20 years, WESST has been improving student societies through an informal association of information and a medium for sharing ideas to learn about people and schools. WESST is the organization that represents the western region for the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students (CFES). Currently, there are thirteen member schools who participate in WESST events, such as Western Engineering Competition and other conferences. Western Engineering Competition is a competition open to all engineering students of the WESST member schools. The categories of the competition range from design to impromptu debate. At WESST Retreat, informal sessions and discussions are held to review the structure, mandate, and existence of WESST.
