Accomodations are free if you are selected, you only need to pay for you flight and you get to spend two weeks in Europe.

Read the attached document and learn about the application process so you don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity.

Engineering Design Teams Referendum

Posted on March 02, 2014 by President

On Monday, February 24, 2014 the EUS Council passed a motion to allow the Engineering Student Teams Council (ESTC), soon to be Engineering Design Teams Council (EDTC), to add a referendum question to the ballot at this year’s elections. The referendum question will propose an $2 student fee increase that will be used to benefit the design teams.

The wording of the referendum will be as follows:

Question: Do you approve the temporary addition of $2 to the Engineering Undergraduate Society (EUS) fee for the next 5 years that would support the UBC Engineering Design Teams Council (EDTC)?

Background and Clarification: This fee would provide an annual operating budget for the EDTC that would be used for shared resources for the teams and for all engineering students. Individuals may opt out with due cause by contacting the EDTC. The fee will exist for the next 5 years, at which point it will be removed unless another referendum approves an extension.

Questions can be directed to
