    The Benton Engineering Council was established in 1910 and our mission is to serve the engineering student body by means of aiding the development of the societies found within the Benton Engineering Council. We serve as the link between engineering students and the bodies which govern them and advance the name of the College of Engineering to UF students and the surrounding community.

    Events: Engineers Week (E Week) and Pi Day

    We are open to all students! If you wish to develop your professional development and leadership skills while working with all of the amazing organizations at the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, then the BEC is the place for you!
