GEARS is a club that was started by the students of SOE (School of Engineering) in 2015. It was for the engineering students to have a community where they could improve their skills and innovate projects together.

Our club ensures that the students can have a space where they are able to freely discuss their schoolwork with other members of GEARS to learn from each other. The freedom to talk to students from different batches will improve the communication skills of all our students.

The main goal of our club is to develop the skills of students to help prepare them for their future professional careers. We have events such as Open House, which will give the students the opportunity to work with other students in terms of event planning, coordinating with students from other courses and to further improve their engineering skills by building robots to showcase to the public.

Aside from the development of skills, GEARS enriches the school experience of our students as the friendships forged in the club creates a fun environment for students outside the classroom.
