Chemical Engineering Students Society

Melbourne University Chemical Engineering Students Society (MUCESS) was founded in 1960 to help establish a feeling of belonging for the Chemical Engineers at that time. Since then MUCESS has helped preserve a Chemical Engineering stream at Melbourne Uni after some calls to have it disbanded. The course now on offer is considered one of the best in the world after a recent grading by external sources. Every Chemical Engineer at Melbourne automatically becomes a member of MUCESS. The Society now plays an active role in bringing industry representatives to numerous functions over the year for the benefit of its members. Other events such as barbeques, football matches, a trivia night, car rally and a Chemical Engineering Dinner are run throughout the year. MUCESS is intimately involved with the development of the Chemical Engineering course structure, and is a very important tool for student input. It is also an excellent way for students who might consider running for positions in future to help develop essential skills before entering industry.

Club Aims:

  1. To actively promote, develop, and foster a strong relationship between chemical engineering students at the University of Melbourne and leading figures/companies within the Australian engineering industry.
  2. To Hold activities, both academic and social, of such a nature as to interest and benefit the members.
  3. To represent the members in matters affecting their academic interests.
  4. To promote the welfare of members
  5. To be a forum for the expression of members’ opinions on the matters affecting their welfare.
  6. To make rules and by-laws, enacted by the society in general meeting and the society committee respectively, for the peace, order and good government of the society.
