Student Organizations

Organizations for Students in the College of Technology


Student Organizations are a wonderful way to get involved with other students, faculty and community members who share your interests and career goals.

The College of Technology hosts numerous student organizations, some of them reflecting larger national or international professional organizations and some which are unique to our college.

Membership in the honor societies is by invitation only and is based on academic merit.


Student membership in the professional organizations is available to students who are in accredited programs that relate to that of the mission of the professional organization. Usually dues are required, as is a certain minimal course load in the area of your major.
