Student Organizations

Five student organizations provide social, academic and professional development for our students. Four are student chapters of national organizations and one is a club formed through student interest.

American Society of Mechanical Engineers

ASME is the leading organization for mechanical engineers. Through its membership of over 140,000 members worldwide, including 34,000 student members, it supports mechanical engineers, mechanical engineering students, and promotes public knowledge of engineering.

Society of Manufacturing Engineers

SME supports and promotes manufacturing and manufacturing engineers.

Society of Women Engineers

SWE is designed specifically for women. The organization focuses on support for female engineers and engineering students, as well as promoting engineering in primary and secondary schools.  Each year, it sponsors Horizons. Junior high school girls are invited to spend the day with engineering students in the hopes of sparking an interest in the science and engineering fields

National Society of Black Engineers

NSBE is an organization to promote the interest and success of minority students in engineering.

Robotics Club

The university also has an active Robotics Teams. Two students competed when the university hosted this year's Midwest VEX U Regional Qualifier Competition, the largest Vex U regional competition in the United States.
