Engineering Student Organizations

American Institute of Aeronautics & Astronautics (AIAA)
The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics is the principal society and voice serving the aerospace profession. Its purpose is to advance the arts, sciences and technology of aeronautics and astronautics and to foster and promote the professionalism of those engaged in these pursuits.

American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE)
Members of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers network with fellow chemical engineering students and practicing chemical engineers. Students use the organization to engage in mentoring opportunities, apply for special scholarships and explore new technologies.

American Helicopter Society
AHS offers information on career and internship opportunities; scholarship availability; student educational competitions and informative chapter presentations. Student chapters conduct regular meetings focusing on vertical flight activities taking place on both the collegiate and national level.

American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
Students in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers benefit from e-mentoring opportunities, subscriptions to mechanical engineering publications and scholarships. The ASME Battlebots Project allows students to develop working knowledge of engineering design, fabrication and end-use by building combat robots.

Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
Throughout the academic year, ACM organizes social events, movie nights, programming contests, travel opportunities and a fireside chat. Student members of ACM benefit from use of a student lounge equipped with two PC's, an iMac, a Solaris and high-speed wireless internet access in Lopata Hall, Room 509.

Association of Dual Degree & Transfer Engineering Students
The Association of Dual Degree and Transfer Engineering Students organizes and sponsors social activities for dual degree and transfer students to build strong social connections between its members and the WUSTL community.

Association of Graduate Students (AGES)
The Association of Graduate Engineering Students is the student organization that represents and coordinates activities for graduate students.

Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES)
The Biomedical Engineering Society works to raise awareness of advances in biomedical engineering knowledge.

Computer Science & Engineering Graduate Student Association (CSE GSA)
The Computer Science and Engineering Graduate Student Association is comprised of graduate students in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering. CSE GSA organizes social events, seminars and workshops.

Engineering Societies Council
Engineering Societies Council is comprised of representatives from all Engineering student groups. Meetings are held once a month to discuss opportunities for collaboration, improvements to the School, ways to promote Engineering groups and events and opportunities to get involved.

Engineering Student Council (EnCouncil)
As the student council of the School of Engineering & Applied Science, EnCouncil strives to represent the interests of engineering students to the administration. Using EnCouncil as a vehicle, students are able to influence positive changes in the engineering school while developing leadership skills. EnCouncil is responsible for school-wide events like Engineers Week, Cheap Lunch and Vertigo.

Engineering Test Kitchen
Engineering Test Kitchen is a non-profit consulting firm founded and led by Washington University undergraduate engineering students.

Engineers Without Borders (EWB)/Engineering World Health (EWH)
Engineers Without Borders partners with developing communities to improve their quality of life through the implementation of environmentally sustainable, equitable, and economical engineering projects while developing internationally responsible engineers and engineering students. Formed in conjunction with EWB, Engineering World Health focuses on engineering problems related to medical technology.

Eta Kappa Nu
Eta Kappa Nu is the electrical and computer engineering honor society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)

Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (Formula SAE)
Members of the motorsport program at Washington University are enthusiastic students who completely design and fabricate a formula style race car. Comprised mainly of engineers, but open to students of all disciplines, the team is committed to exploring the frontiers of innovation and technology.

Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineers (IEEE)
IEEE strives to provide students with electrical and computer engineering resources outside of the classroom.

National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)
NSBE students work to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community. At WUSTL, students volunteer for various diversity projects in the St. Louis community and host an annual campus-wide career fair.

Pi Tau Sigma
Pi Tau Sigma is the Mechanical Engineering Honor Society.

Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM)
Applied mathematics, in partnership with computational science, is essential in solving real-world problems. SIAM’s mission is to build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology through the student community at WUSTL.

Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
SWE members strive to support women engineering students by organizing outreach, mentoring, networking and social activities. Each year, members host a "Women in Engineering Day" for high school women interested in engineering.

Tau Beta Pi
Tau Beta Pi is a national engineering honor society designed to encourage and recognize superior scholarship and leadership achievement either in broad fields of education or in departmental fields at either undergraduate or graduate levels.

Upsilon Pi Epsilon
Upsilon Pi Epsilon is the International Honor Society for the Computing and Information Disciplines.

Washington University Student Union
Student Union (SU) is the undergraduate student government at Washington University.

Women in Computer Science (WiCS)
Through social activities and mentoring programs, WiCS aims to foster a sense of community among women in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering, including undergraduate students, graduate students, post docs and faculty.
