Student Organizations

For those who want to enhance their learning opportunities, the College of Engineering offers multiple student organizations. These are active, collaborative, networking groups that connect you with like-minded peers, faculty, and professionals.

Student organizations

There are Drexel organizations for engineers and architects interested in the building industry; for aeronautics and astronautics students; for the HVAC community; for computer students; for advanced technologies and sustainability students; and for materials engineers, among many others, including diversity-based groups like the National Society of Black Engineers and the Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers.

Over 20 groups are designed for undergraduates, with an additional eight for graduate students.
