About us

Engineering Student Council (ESC)

Engineering Student Council (ESC) serves as the undergraduate governing student organization in the College of Engineering at MSU, as well as the umbrella organization for all engineering student organizations.


ESC is designed to help students enrolled in the College of Engineering (CoE) in a variety of ways. We help students get involved in extracurricular opportunities, get resources for registered student organizations (RSO), and provide a voice for undergraduate student concerns to the college's administration.


As the undergraduate governing student organization, some of our core responsibilities involve us acting as test groups for administrative changes, communicators of college-wide issues and developments, and final selectors of the commencement speaker and singer each year.


As the umbrella organization for engineering student organizations, we help to manage college-wide events, mitigate issues that these groups encounter, provide funding to RSOs, and work to boost RSO membership as much as possible.
