Student Clubs and Organizations

AIChE undergraduate club members in front of the Eternal Flame in Orchard Park, NY

Enriching academic experiences and building connections.

Engineering clubs allow students to gain hands on experience with the material they learn in the classroom. In addition to networking with professors and professionals, they carry out research projects, conduct valuable experiments and compete in competitions throughout the nation. Many of clubs are nationally recognized and work closely with national societies. Most notably, the engineering clubs participate in the National Engineers Week in February of each year, where each club competes in events such as a paper bridge competition, rocket launches, Battle Bots and more.
