About Postgraduate Engineering Society
We are the Postgraduate Engineering Society ("PGES" for short!), run by and for postgraduate Engineering students at the University of Nottingham.
Our aim is to help create a sense of belonging in the diverse PGR and PGT community.
We organise regular social events, from chilled games and movie nights to the highlights of our year: the Christmas Dinner and the May Gala. We are part of the wider Faculty of Engineering effort to provide wellbeing and careers support to our members. We also support involvement in university-wide intra-mural and non-competitive sports.
PGES is a great way to meet other engineers across different courses and research areas – drop us a message if you have any questions or ideas for the committee to consider! Membership is subsidised for postgraduate Engineering students, and £3 for everyone else.
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
