The Cambridge University Engineers' Association is an organisation for all current and past members of the University of Cambridge who are affiliated with Engineering.

Cambridge Engineers have been helping to improve our world for more than 150 years and, given the scale of the challenges and opportunities facing the world today, the demands for their continuing contribution are as great as ever. The general aim of CUEA is to contribute to improving the effectiveness of current and future engineers who have been or are associated with the Cambridge University Engineering Department.
