Co-Op Mining Engineering Undergraduate Society
|Current President||Matthew Desorbay|
The Co-Op Mining Engineering Undergraduate Society, or CMEUS, is a department in the EUS. The CMEUS is the undergraduate society for all mining students, regardless of whether or not they have elected to maintain their co-op degree status.
The CMEUS is responsible for organizing several events and fun opportunities for involvement throughout each academic year. The mining student council organizes both new events and events that have been successful. These events vary greatly in nature from a active full-day ice fishing trip, to a relaxing games night in collaboration with another departmental council. Certain initiatives such as industry speaker talks at McGill University and the organization of an annual trip to The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) Conference in Toronto offer mining engineering students at McGill diverse opportunities to gain insight on interesting topics and additionally network with industry professionals.
Each Fall & Winter semester, CMEUS organizes a banquet for its students to relax after a (hopefully) successful semester! After the dinner, we all gather for an EUS-wide afterparty at a local club. The professors are also there so its a fun opportunity to get to know them outside of the classroom.
WE DRILL. WE BLAST. WE NEVER FINISH LAST. (or always?) But actually, to learn more check out E-Week.
The Canadian Mining Games
The Canadian Mining Games (CMG) were established at McGill University in 1991 and each year the event is hosted by a mining engineering program somewhere in Canada. The Canadian Mining Games were created between a collaboration of a McGill mining engineering student and a mining engineering student from Polytechnique Montréal.
McGill Mining sends a delegation of 16 mining students to the competition each year to represent the program. At CMG, our team competes against universities from across Canada in various competitions to showcase our skills in academic and physical events. CMG also offers a great opportunity to network with various professionals and companies within the mining industry
The CMG McGill Delegation is open to any undergraduate student studying Mining Engineering. If you're interested in participating, the department sends out an email every September. Once you express interest, try-outs will occur to finalize the roster of 16!
All undergraduate mining engineering students can obtain access to our lounge - conveniently located in Frank Dawson Adams (FDA) 103. To gain access, a sign-up sheet is available to put down your information on Facebook or you can contact any of the council members!
In the lounge, we have couches and a TV for relaxing, big tables and chairs for studying, and a fridge & microwave for all your lunch-storing needs. It's a great place to study, hangout with friends and is also a solid location to gather on Fridays before Blues Pub! There are lots of other fun things here and there, come drop by and see for yourself.
"In the lounge, we bond. Talk mining." - Matthew Desorbay, CMEUS President 2020-2021
