HCES at a Glance
The Harvard College Engineering Society is a student-run organization at Harvard College aimed at promoting engineering and cross disciplinary collaboration on campus through participating in competitions and working on various engineering projects, as well as serving as a resource for undergraduate engineers at Harvard.
A relatively young organization, we were founded in 2004 by Jeffrey Ma and Peter Lee, who envisioned the club as a place that helps build a more tight-knit engineering community at Harvard and supports exciting side engineering projects. The first project they chose was RoboCup (autonomous robotic soccer) for its favorable history, its strict deadlines, and its requirement of integrating mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science.
Over the past few years HCES has grown to encompass all aspects of the Harvard Undergraduate Engineering experience. We aim to enhance engineering at Harvard academically, socially, and professionally through working with SEAS administration to improve the curriculum, providing peer advising, hosting engineering social events and guest speakers, helping students start their own projects, and helping our engineers find interesting research, internship, and job opportunities.
Overall, HCES is here as a resource for the engineering student body. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments.
