At Illinois, engineering students find numerous opportunities to get involved. Organizations offer students a chance to make friends, have fun, and learn something outside of the classroom or lab settings. They also bring students together with faculty, alumni and practicing engineers.
Student organizations bring in speakers from various engineering fields, sponsor field trips to construction and manufacturing sites, help coordinate Engineering Open House at the University of Illinois, sponsor movies, competitions, and social events, and assist in finding summer employment for students. Alumni are always welcome to share their professional expertise, host a group, or get involved in other ways. Visit the Student Organizations page to see a list of current student groups and click through to their websites for contact information. Not sure which group to contact?
