Design teams are the perfect combination of hands on and theoretical. By combining and applying students skills, design teams allow students to transform their creative ideas into something great for the public.

Design Teams
Entrepreneurial student organizations take the initiative to empowering students to realize their innovative potential. They encourage creative thinking, independence and often organize events to connect students to startup or smaller companies looking for talent.

Professional student organizations provide students to not only network with other engineering students with similar interests but also graduate students, professors and industry representatives. These organizations often inform students the possible opportunities available after graduation through a variety of networking events.
