Organizations, Clubs and Competitions
Joining a student group is a great way to explore majors in the college of engineering. Whether you want to work hands on with an engineering design project, or you just want to meet other students, it all starts with attending a meeting or contacting one of the officers or the faculty sponsor. Competitions offer opportunities to do hands-on work in a public forum. These events are often sponsored by professional organizations and corporations.
