The CEUS has been organizing events for its students for decades, and every year sees new events being added to a packed schedule! Civil events can be described as innovative, original and open to anyone!
Some events are free while others are paid. Paid events will be represented by $ signs with the following range:
$ = 0-15$ entry fee
$$ = 15-50$ entry fee
$$$ = 50$ + entry fee
Keep in mind that even free entry events may be located at a bar or restaurant where if you want to have a drink it must be purchased.
Some free events also provide free drinks for the first round only.
Events organized by the CEUS can be divided into a few categories, with each event presenting original or common characteristics. These types of events include, but are not limited to:
Events organized by the CEUS that prioritize meeting with recruiters and companies in the civil engineering profession.
