First things first: ANYONE can become a member. You don’t need to do engineering (I know I don’t), you don’t need to go to the University of Adelaide, you don’t even need to a student of a tertiary institution. Because really, we never stop learning, thus we are all students.
The AUES is the largest voluntary society at UoA and holds the biggest, noisiest, longest, most amazing events in the World (well, sort of).
To become a member all you need to do is turn up to an event, find the people selling membership and cough up $10 (or $5 if they’re on sale). Haggling and trades may be acceptable with some committee, but you’ll have to figure that out yourself.
The best time of the year to get membership is O’Week or the first BBQ.
