Student Clubs and Organizations

This is just a sample of some of the clubs ECE students are involved in. For a full list of all engineering and all University of Utah clubs and organizations, see below.

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.

Utah Student Robotics

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.
