ASHRAE Student Branch
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) is a world-wide professional association with the goal of advancing Heating, Ventilation, and Air- Conditioning (HVAC) design and systems. The mission of the Regina Student Chapter is to enhance the learning experience for students by providing a variety of activities. These activities include professional building tours, educational training, as well as networking events. For more information find us on Facebook at “Ashrae – Regina, Saskatchewan Student Chapter”.
Engineers Without Borders
Engineers Without Borders (EWB) is a group that brings people and ideas together to tackle the most crucial causes of poverty and inequality. With chapters throughout Canada and ventures in Africa, we aim to have positive effects on the world through systems change practices. At the University of Regina, we have teams working on youth engagement, advocacy, fair trade, member learning, and much more. You could find yourself presenting to high school students, meeting with members of parliament, helping make the U of R a fair-trade certified campus, and travelling across Canada. Come to a meeting and volunteer with us! It will look great on your resumé and you will have a blast doing it!
University of Regina Society of Petroleum Engineers
The Society of Petroleum Engineers is the largest individual member international organization dedicated to the advancement of technical knowledge in the development production and exploration of oil and gas resources and related technologies for the public benefit all while providing professionals the opportunity to enhance their technical and professional competence. The Student Chapter is dedicated to upholding these core values as well as preparing students for an exciting career in the oil and gas industry. By encouraging students to network with professionals and put their technical skills to practice, we hope to develop engineers that have a high standard of integrity and can make an exceptional impact in the oil and gas industry.
Celestial Laboratories is an undergraduate engineering and design team. We’re involved in a variety of competitions across diverse engineering disciplines, including aerospace, mechanical, and biomedical design. The vast majority of our work has been dedicated to completing the Bion Airlock System, a prototype of an airlock intended for early planetary missions to Mars. Anyone interested in getting involved in design, manufacturing, or academic writing and presentation through Celestial Laboratories is encouraged to contact us at our email address.
Cougar Racing is the University of Regina’s collegiate chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers International (SAE). There are hundreds of student chapters worldwide that compete in competitions all over the world. Cougar Racing focuses on the Baja Design Series, competing in events such as hill climb, rock crawl, and a four-hour endurance race. These events are all sanctioned through the Collegiate SAE series, with the U of R attending events in the United States.
The IEEE is the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers. Despite the name of the group being very focused on electrical and electronics engineers, we as a group believe that anyone with a passion for technology and all things electrical/electronic related could benefit from joining. The U of R IEEE student group provides a wide array of benefits to its members such as: funding to attend conferences and competitions, textbooks, access to parts, mentorship, talks from different professors, and more. Our room is located in the Education building, it would be our pleasure for all interested individuals to drop by and see what we are all about!
As most of you have probably guessed, we make robots! We focus on every aspect of robotics such as, designing, manufacturing, 3D printing, coding, automation all with a touch of realism and professionalism. We take what we learn in engineering and science and apply it to all of our projects. University may seem boring, but when you get to apply your learnings to create robots, that is when you learn the most. Even though we focus on a lot of different aspects, our sole purpose is education and getting you prepared for our future. Check us out on facebook “UofRobotics”.
Regina Engineering Concrete Toboggan Team
Regina Engineering Concrete Toboggan Team (RECTT) is a diverse engineering group on campus made up of students from all engineering disciplines. The team is tasked with designing and manufacturing a toboggan frame made of aluminium, steel or other durable material which is equipped with completely concrete skis. The design of the toboggan, skis and concrete mix incorporates both mechanical and civil engineering analysis. Once complete the team takes the toboggan to the annual Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR) to compete against over 20 engineering schools from across Canada made up of over 400 students. GNCTR is the largest and longest running engineering competition in Canada.
