Student Societies and Clubs
There are a number of student-run societies aimed at engineering students; whose activities are usually social and involve the practice of a professional hobby or cause to promote professional development.
Aerospace Society: This society connects aerospace engineering students to a wider network of students in the various years through social events, and arrange visits to course related events such as trips to air shows.
Automatic Control and System Engineering Society: Led by students in the department; members will get the opportunity to meet other students studying their course through socials, and sport events. We also provide a level of support with academic choices such as running events advising on module selection.

Civil Engineering Society: We are a student society, led by students, for students to give a common ground for students studying in the department to meet each other.
We put on a wide range of activities from social events, bar crawls, nights out to technical events on interesting projects and techniques plus a variety of inter-mural sports teams such as football and netball.
Chemical Engineering Student Society: This is a student-run society made for students who study Chemical Engineering at the University of Sheffield.
The society organise regular socials around Sheffield throughout the year from our freshers t-shirt social to post exam pub golf and the infamous ChemEng summer ball. We also run an annual trip to the IChemE Frank Morton sports day which is always great fun! Frank Morton 2017 will be held in Loughborough.
