Student Organizations & Societies

The College of Engineering and Computer Science encourages its students to become involved with the many professional societies and organizations related to engineering and computer science.

These groups participate in national competitions, invite professional speakers on campus, tour local companies, and arrange student social activities. They also plan special exhibits and activities held during National Engineers Week.

Membership and participation in these organizations provide students with an opportunity to develop leadership skills, learn more about their chosen field of study, and meet practicing professionals.
