member talks to man in suit


ENSOC has been a driving force for the social INDUSTRY scene within UC, coordinating some epic tournaments and events for all to get amongst.

Brewery Tours

Beer and food everything a man or woman needs. ENSOC, ENGCO Consulting Engineers and Three Boys Brewery are happy to present the annual ENSOC Brewery Tour for 2022! This tour gives you the ins and outs of Three Boys Brewery while supplying the goods for the networking event / beer tasting afterwards. Perfect time to get to know the team at ENGCO and taste some great beer. Across the country, they are working in the structural and civil engineering fields to improve outputs for their clients and raise the bar in New Zealand engineering. ENGCO offices are located in Christchruch, Queenstown and Auckland. As ENGCO is a structural/civil consulting firm, this event is for civil engineering students only! Tickets are free for members and $10 for non-members. Buses will be provided to and from the event. Tickets will be available from Wednesday (22nd July) at the ENSOC Shop during shop hours (12:45-1:15). Note: Final year CIVIL get 1st dibs on tickets, followed by 2nd Pro Civil

Yarns Night

ENSOC holds two events throughout the year that we like to call Yarns Night. They aim to create an informal environment for students and engineers to (as you may have guessed from the name) have some really good yarns. One of the yarns night is catered to intermediate students, where speakers chat about what their own speciality is like and what kind of projects they’ve worked on. Our first-year members have found these nights really helpful for deciding which speciality to go into. Our second yarns night is targeted at 2nd and 3rd pro students who are looking for graduate jobs and summer internships. The event offers a great chance for students to chat with industry members over a beer or two.

Engineering Expo

ENSOC have the absolute pleasure of hosting our annual ENSOC Engineering Careers Expo. Bringing great engineering companies and UC’s fantastic engineering students together, right in the heart of the College of Engineering! The Expo is one of the highlights in the University of Canterbury year with value for both students and industry members. Students are given an opportunity to gather ideas and insights to make informed decisions about their futures. Undergraduate engineers are assisted in choosing their career and study paths, while final year students are provided with a range of graduate recruitment possibilities. The 2022 Expo will take place on the 27th of July from 10:00-15:00 at the Engineering Core (69 Creyke Road, Ilam). The event is open to everyone, feel free to come and have a look around! If your company would like to secure a stall, please do not hesitate to get in contact with for any queries you have.
