Eta Kappa Nu – Rho Chapter
Eta Kappa Nu is a nation-wide organization that is dedicated to encouraging and recognizing excellence in the electrical and computer engineering field. It was founded in 1904 at the University of Illinois by ten students as the vision of an organization recognizing academic excellence in electrical engineering. The local Rho Chapter at the University of Colorado dates back to March 4, 1922 and consists of electrical engineering students who are excited about the possibilities of our major and are willing to share this with anyone who might ask.
The chapter hosts several service and social events throughout the year, including a series of seminars that focus on teaching technical skills that are not typically taught, but yet are very useful for the engineering student or practicing engineer. The chapter also hosts small social events where students can wind down from a tough day in the books.
IEEE Student Group
A non-profit organization, IEEE (pronounced Eye-triple-E) is the world’s leading professional association for the advancement of technology. Benefits include:
Women in ECEE
Women in ECEE promotes diversity in the Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at University of Colorado Boulder. The goals of the group are:
- To create a community atmosphere among ECEE students
- To provide students with role models
- To facilitate interaction between graduate and undergraduate students
- To promote professional and technical development of the students
Women in ECEE's principal activities include social events where students of all genders can gather and have fun in a low-key environment (e.g. coffee hours); hosting speakers and panels to discuss professional development, work/life balance and career choices; and laboratory tours.
Join us at regularly-scheduled Coffee Hours.

Optical Society of America
The Optical Society of America (OSA) is a professional organization founded in 1916 for researchers, scientists and engineers who study light and how to control it. The student chapter here at CU is a mix of undergraduate and graduate students who want to learn more about light or who are already studying it. Anyone is welcome to join!
They have three categories of activities:

ECEE Graduate Student Association (ECEE -GSA)
The mission of the department's Graduate Student Association is to create a culture where graduate students can participate in and plan department events; to facilitate building community across department research groups; and to help all students feel like they belong to the department and its community. The host events like:
The ECEE-GSA also plans to send a representative to regular department faculty meetings to offer contributions and/or voice concerns to help the department improve its environment for students. For more information, please email email@example.com.
CU Energy Club
The CU Energy Club is a multidisciplinary group focused on both education and outreach in the energy sector. Our primary goals are to expand on what CU students learn in the classroom and help them make connections in the energy industry. We appeal to both graduate and undergraduate students, drawing primarily from students of engineering, environmental science, business and anyone interested in energy.
At the club's monthly meetings, guest speakers present their work or research. We hold biweekly Energy Talks throughout the year. These talks are primarily student-led presentations on current energy events or topics of interest. Check out our events at the CU Energy Club website.
We hope to see you at our events!
