The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is home to more than thirty engineering clubs and organizations. These clubs focus on many different facets of the engineering field and allow students to gain hands-on experience of the material they learn in the classroom. In addition to networking with professors and professionals, engineering clubs actively carry out research projects, compete in competitions throughout the nation, and participate in community events. Most notably, the engineering clubs participate in the National Engineers Week in February of each year, where each club competes in events such as a paper bridge competition, rocket launches, Battle Bots and more. Student club members also attend both regional and national conferences.
