Engineering Student Center

The Engineering Student Center (CAi, Spanish acronym) is led by a 10-person Student Council elected by and from among current engineering students. The Student Council is supported by an undergraduate academic advisor and subadvisor, as well as a graduate academic advisor. The Student Council is further aided by a group of delegates that are also elected by and from among current engineering students.

A close relationship is maintained throughout the year between the CAi and the Executive Office of the School of Engineering, who together collaborate on various student activities. Furthermore, the CAi President and academic advisors participate on the School Board, the highest collegiate authority within the School that is responsible for making decisions regarding UC Engineering.
