Student Organizations

One great way to get involved with real, live engineering experiences is to join a student chapter of one of the many national and international professional engineering organizations. These organizations encourage leadership, collegiality with your fellow classmates in an informal setting, mentoring by upper classman and graduate students and networking with area and regional professionals. This integral part of your college experience provides great opportunities to get involved and gain experiences outside of the classroom. Many of our student organizations travel to their regional or national meetings and compete in design competitions or technical presentations. Don’t wait to join! Future employers look for participation in these and other organizations to show that you are more than just a GPA!
