As one of the first engineering clubs to be started at QUT, CESS has been in operation in one form or another for many years now.

Originally named 'Civil Engineering Social Society', the club has recently undergone a rebranding phase which included a name change to 'Civil Engineering Student Society'. While subtle, this change points a large change in the CESS goals and values.

The social events held by CESS were, and remain to be the best on campus. We offer pub-crawls, boat cruises, karaoke nights, barefoot bowls and more to keep up the spirit during those hard semesters, but recently we've expanded to include academic and industry related events.

We work closely with the students, the academics and the industry to ensure that CESS offers the best it can to it's members.
