Student Organizations

Student organizations on the University of Mississippi campus have proved to be a vital part of academic life. On-campus clubs and organizations can enhance personal and professional skills that are invaluable to the well-rounded college student. University of Mississippi faculty and staff are helping to offer these experiences to our student body by facilitating hands-on training and connections in the community that will aid students as they graduate and move into a career in their chosen profession.

Not only are these groups coordinating local outreach events, but they are also learning to apply classroom knowledge to real world situations. Within each of these organizations, students can be seen taking the initiative to create proactive involvement in the community.

We have many student organizations available for your involvement:

  • The Engineering Student Body (ESB) oversees the mentoring and tutoring programs as well as school-wide events like Freshman Convocation, Engineers week (E-Week), and community service projects.

Also, each discipline has a professional society:

  • The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
  • American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
  • American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE)
  • Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
  • Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
  • Association of Engineering Geologists (AEG)

There are also several other groups to get plugged into:

  • The Engineering Service Corps (ESC) is a serviced based program focused on recognizing and supporting engineering students in their volunteer efforts.
  • Engineers Without Borders (EWB) is also a service based organization aimed at involving and training internationally responsible engineers and engineering students.
  • The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is dedicated to the academic and professional success of African-American engineering students and professionals.
  • The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is focused on supporting women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders.
  • Tau Beta Pi (TBP) is the National Engineering Honor Society.
