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.
Alpha Sigma Mu International Professional Honor Society is dedicated to encouraging and recognizing excellence in the materials engineering field. Members consist of students, alumni, and other professionals who have demonstrated exceptional academic and professional accomplishments. Student members are selected on the basis of scholastic standing, character and leadership.
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.
