More than 1,000 student organizations are active across campus. Nearly 80 percent of our students gain leadership experience in club activities. The student clubs affiliated with the Department offer opportunities for professional development including participation in regional, national, and international meetings and conferences and the chance to network with students, faculty, staff, alumni and other professionals.

Study Abroad

Some 400 programs are available to ABE and TSM students to study abroad, with programs in over 100 countries ranging from 10-day to year-long experiences. Students may participate in programs through the College of ACES Education Abroad Programs Office, International Programs in Engineering, or the campus Study Abroad Office. Most recently, the department has offered winter break programs to Puerto Rico and India, summer programs to Puerto Rico, China, South Africa, and Greece, and semester exchange programs to Brazil, Greece, Italy, Ireland, and Spain. Don’t miss out on applying for departmental, college, and campus scholarships to support your study abroad adventure.

Undergraduate Research

Participating in a research project is a great way for students to connect with faculty members and learn whether or not graduate school is right for them. Students participating in research projects can either earn credit or part-time employment pay.
