Student Societies  

There are four separate student societies available for Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications students at UNSW: ELSOC, TWEET, STEEP and ELEC PG-Soc. Read through their descriptions to see which ones are right for you. 


Founded in 1954, and with more than 1000 members, ELSOC is one of the largest societies on campus. We serve all undergraduate UNSW Electrical Engineers. Throughout the year, we hold a range of academic, social and industry-related events, where you can meet up with friends to relax and/or study.

Founded in 2014, The Women in Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications (TWEET) aims to create lasting friendships and connections and change the face of electrical engineering. 

TWEET offers female EET students at UNSW a place to meet, get to know each other and share experiences. We provide an avenue for you to receive academic advice, form friendships and further career development.
