Participating in student organizations is a vital part of the CU Engineering experience. The following student organizations are hosted by the College of Engineering and Applied Science:
University of Colorado Engineering Council
UCEC is the student governing body for the College of Engineering and Applied Science. UCEC is composed of representatives from each of the student professional and honorary societies, as well as other interested engineering students. Any engineering student may participate in the bi-weekly meetings. UCEC organizes college-wide undergraduate student activities such as Career Week and Engineering Days (E-Days).
Colorado Engineer Magazine
Established in 1904, the Colorado Engineer, or CEM as it has become known, is the oldest student publication at the University of Colorado Boulder. The magazine is written and produced by CU-Boulder students and features a variety of articles that highlight the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Engineering Ambassadors is a student group dedicated to public relations for the college. Members serve as student representatives and tour guides for prospective students and other guests interested in the college.
Engineering Excellence Fund
EEF is a group of students and educators that is dedicated to improving undergraduate education in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at CU-Boulder. The EEF finances innovative projects in undergraduate and graduate education, including the ITL Laboratory, the CAD computer lab, new course offerings, new lab equipment, and cutting-edge research.
The Engineering Fellows is an honorary service organization involving a select group of academically successful, service-oriented undergraduates who promote academic excellence in the college through peer academic support. The fellows provide study sessions for difficult courses, informal help with coursework, and general academic advice and assistance.
Engineers Without Borders
Engineers Without Borders is a non-profit organization that helps disadvantaged communities improve their quality of life through implementation of environmentally and economically sustainable engineering projects, while developing internationally responsible engineering students.
The college hosts chapters of many professional engineering societies. These societies have a variety of functions, including distributing information about student government, setting up guest speakers, organizing social events, and sponsoring entries in national design and paper competitions. Membership in professional societies is open to anyone.
The College of Engineering and Applied Science hosts several honorary societies, which invite students to join based on demonstrated academic achievement (usually a GPA of 3.5 or better) in their junior year.
