Summary

The Melbourne University Engineering Students' Club was founded in 1889 as the Engineering Students' Society.

Details

From the early 1900s, the Melbourne University Engineering Society became more than a student club, becoming both a student body and an Alumni organization and professional engineers' association. It was one of twelve Australian professional engineering societies which amalgamated to form the Institution of Engineers, Australia (IEAust) in 1919, when its Members transferred to IEAust as foundation Associate Members.

Its proceedings were published as "The Varsity Engineer" in ten volumes between 1910 and 1916, with a War memorial edition published in 1919, to honour University students and graduates who had served in the war.
