ENSOC is recognised by the Dean of the Engineering School, Professor Conan Fee, as having an important role in both the professional and social development of students at the University of Canterbury. In an effort to enhance the academic performance of all our engineering members, we run a range of tutorials throughout the year, study suppers, as well as organizing a professional development programme that is open to all students.

We also run the prestigious Templin Scroll academic competition, which is an award for the best technical report on any area of engineering or science.
