CodeJam is a 48-hour team-based programming competition fueled by great minds and energy drinks. McGill University’s Electrical, Computer, and Software Engineering Student Society (ECSESS) is collaborating with some of Montreal’s biggest software companies to make a challenging, real-world application problem for you to solve. ECSESS’s largest event is back again this year in November! πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»βš‘

Departmental Banquets

ECSESS presents the swankiest way to celebrate the end of semester with good food and friends. Dress up, come hangout with your friends and some of your favourite professors. The evening starts off with a fine dining experience and there will be an after-party with all EUS departments afterwards! 🍷🍽

Coffee House

ECSESS presents one of its ~signature~ events! We’ll be spending the evening watching our peers (and professors???) show us what they got, alongside a nice cup of coffee and snacks in a very stress-free environment in EUS Common Room! All acts and performers welcome! β˜•πŸŽΈ

DPM Socials

Every semester ECSESS organizes a DPM Social where you can mingle with your classmates and learn some tips and tricks on how to make it through the DPM project! We invite our profs, TAs, and survivors from previous semesters. There are also free food and beverages! πŸ•πŸ₯€

Trivia Night

Do you watch too much jeopardy? Have some knowledge about McGill, EUS/ECSESS, technology, history, music, TV shows, movies and some other categories? Come join us in October in EUS Common Room to show your knowledge, compete with other ECSIES over some trivia questions and physical challenges and have fun! We’ll have so many prizes, fried chicken (and vegetarian/vegan/healthy alternatives) and good vibes! πŸ“ΊπŸŽˆ

Pancake Breakfasts

Each semester ECSESS hosts its pancake breakfast with some cheap and delicious pancakes, coffee, orange juice, music and good vibes! Come to Trottier main floor for a breakfast break and spend time with other ECSIES in the lounge while enjoying our delicious pancakes! πŸ₯žβ˜•

First Year Welcome Party

At the beginning of each year, we organize a welcome party to congratulate all of our incoming students for making it into Electrical, Computer and Software Engineering! It’s also a chance to meet the student council, learn about opportunities to get involved within our department, enjoy some free food and meet other first-year ECSIES! πŸ‘ΌπŸŽ‰

Apartment Crawls

A party in multiple apartments! There will be 8 different stops at a different apartment, each apartment will have its own party and games, you will be crawling from a stop to another and will have a night you won’t forget! ECSESS organizes at least one apartment crawl in collaboration with other engineering departments. Get ready for a evening full of fun, explore Montreal, meet other Engineers/Friengineers and make memories you won’t forget! πŸ˜ŠπŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈ
