Engineering Clubs and National Societies

  • Ritchie School's Women in Engineering and Computer Science: This is a social networking club focused on building community for undergraduate and graduate women in the Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science. Dr. Corinne Lengsfeld, Faculty Advisor
  • Engineering Club:The Engineering Club is a student organization sponsored by the university and both ECE and MME departments.  All engineering students are encouraged to belong. It coordinates  the the Engineering Mentoring Program (which pairs a student with a practicing engineer from a local company) a well as activities, such as speakers, E-Week, picnics and other get-togethers. This club is an excellent opportunity to make friends, connect with other engineering students and to practice leadership.   Dr. Brad Davidson, Faculty Advisor

As part of the Engineering Club, there are student chapters or branches for specialized interests, most of which are connected to national engineering organizations. Cost of student membership in each is moderate and well worth the return. Most of these chapters/branches have programs in which one can take part on a local, regional or national level; some offer competitive scholarships to outstanding students. 

  • ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers)    Dr. Matthew Gordon, Faculty Advisor
