Student organizations are a vital part of the out-of-classroom experience. Networking with your peers facilitates lifelong contacts in your field of interest, and most of all, friendships that can last a lifetime.
We encourage you to get involved and build professional and social connections. There are usually several student-focused activities taking place on campus every day. Some of the Engineering-related clubs are noted below:
The Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) Student Club is a Materials Advantage and MRS Student Chapter. The club participates in several volunteer activities like hosting the College of Engineering’s Engineering Day on campus. They also volunteer for community development projects such as Rake up Boise and attend professional materials science and engineering-related conferences.
During the Spring 2017 Semester, the club holds study sessions every Wednesday from 1:00pm-5:00pm in MEC301.
NSBE’s mission is to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers that excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.
SHPE changes lives by empowering the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development. SHPE’s vision is a world where Hispanics are highly valued and influential as the leading innovators, scientists, mathematicians, and engineers.
SWE’s mission is to encourage and engage women to pursue a career in the Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) fields. We work to achieve this mission through outreach within the community and fostering a support structure on campus which includes the support of both men and women in STEM fields.
Tau Beta Pi (TBP) is the oldest national engineering honor society in the country, and one of the most recognized national societies. Members experience a wide array of activities and opportunities throughout the year. TBP stresses scholarship, personal character, and service to the profession, community, and college. Every semester, we invite the top fifth of seniors and the top eighth of juniors from all engineering majors to join.
