Mechanical Engineering Student Society

MESS is the Mechanical Engineering Student Society that aims to deliver the best academic, professional and social events to support you in your studies, prepare you for your career and give you a much needed brain break (or 12). 

We are aimed predominantly at mechanical, aerospace and mechatronic engineering students, although anyone who is down for a good time with fantastic people will always find a home in the MESSy family.
