Aerospace club

The Aerospace Club at the University of Utah is a student chapter of American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). The AIAA promotes the study of aeronautics and astronautics at the University of Utah, helps students to find related employment, sponsors projects for student participation, and organizes activities that complement aerospace education. Club projects include a wide application of Electrical, Mechanical, Chemical, and Computer engineering principles.

ECE Student Advisory Committee (SAC)

The main duties of the SAC are to:
1. Provide a forum for student concerns
2. Communicate student issues to teachers, courses, and requirements to the department
3. Provide Retention, Promotion and Tenure (RPT) reports for professors

Engineers Without Borders

Engineers Without Borders is a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities worldwide in order to improve their quality of life. This partnership involves the implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while involving and training internationally responsible engineers and engineering students.

IEEE

IEEE is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community through IEEE’s highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.

National Society of Black Engineers

website | contact
The National Society of Black Engineers strives to accomplish the following objectives for our organization:

  • Stimulate and develop student interest in the various engineering disciplines
  • Strive to increase the number of minority students studying engineering at both the undergraduate and graduate levels
  • Encourage members to seek advanced degrees in engineering or related fields and to obtain professional engineering registrations
  • Promote public awareness of engineering and the opportunities for Blacks and other minorities in that profession
  • Function as a representative body on issues and developments that affect the careers of Black Engineers

Robotic Mining Team

The University of Utah Robotic Mining Team is a multidisciplinary group of students who use a combination of electrical, mechanical, and computer engineering as well as computer science to field an autonomous robot to compete in the NASA Robotic Mining competition at Kennedy Space Center. The team was formed in 2014 and took 3rd place out of 49 teams in 2015 and won the judge’s innovative design award and mined more material than any other team in 2016.

RoboUtes

RoboUtes is an interdisciplinary student organization centered around building robots. Currently we have Computer Scientists, Electrical Engineers, and Mechanical Engineers participating. However we would like to foster interest from other fields so please feel free to come talk to us. We don’t bite though you may wish to bring some safety gear in case one of experiments goes awry while you’re visiting!

Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers

Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) SHPE is the leading social-technical organization whose primary function is to enhance and achieve the potential of Hispanics in engineering, math and science. The society is committed to improving the overall culture of engineering at the University of Utah through diversity. Instagram: @uofushpe

Society of Women Engineers (SWE)

Utah’s Society of Women Engineers is the driving force that establishes engineering as a highly desirable career aspiration for women. SWE empowers women to succeed and advance in those aspirations and be recognized for their life-changing contributions and achievements as engineers and leaders.

Tau Beta Pi

Tau Beta Pi is the only national engineering honor society at the University of Utah. TBP members are known not only for their academic excellence, but also for their excellent character and leadership qualities. Moreover, the engineering industry is filled with TBP members, so employers know from experience that members make good employees.

The Women in Engineering (WIE) program

The Women in Engineering (WIE) program is dedicated to serving the community of women graduate and undergraduate engineering/computer science students in the College of Engineering. WIE will focus on retention, recruitment and overall climate enhancement activities. The WIE community includes women of from all seven engineering departments at the University of Utah.
