Student organizations like the ones listed below provide students important opportunities to engage and network with their peers and build valuable relationships for their future lives and careers.

Departmental societies

ASME-UW (American Society of Mechanical Engineers at the University of Washington) is dedicated to improving the college experience of Mechanical Engineering students, promoting discourse, and communication with potential Mechanical Engineering students, and encouraging young minds to gain an interest in STEM fields by outreach events to the community. If you are interested in joining, contact us through email or Facebook.

MEGA helps graduate students connect with each other by organizing opportunities for professional development, mentoring and socializing. It also serves as a point of communication between students and departmental administration. Contact us through email or visit our web page to learn more.
