Student Clubs

SU Student Clubs

There are several active engineering clubs suited for mechanical engineering students. Some engage in external competitions as a club activity, some are social activity oriented, some provide engineering solutions for those in need. Club activities generate a sense of community, camaraderie, goodwill, exposure, and recognition. Engineering club members enjoy a multitude of intellectually challenging opportunities while developing not only friendship among peers, but competence, character, and leadership.

Listed below are a few of the Mechanical Engineering favorites. To check out all the SU Student Clubs in the Center for Student Involvement.

Robotics Club

The robotics club is meant to be a place where both experienced and inexperienced students can come together to share their love of robotics. Robotics is a rapidly developing industry and has numerous applications in the professional world. The club will both give experienced students to use their skills as well as teach those who are new to it by focusing on a project as a club.

Society of Women Engineers (SWE)

Seattle University’s Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Student Chapter is a club that aims to foster women’s passion in engineering. We provide a community and unique opportunities that allow for professional development in our respective disciplines, and hope to encourage more women to pursue study and careers in engineering. 

This club is not limited to just female members; it is open ito all who support women in the industry.

Tau Beta Pi (ΤΒΠ)

Tau Beta Pi is the Engineering Honors Society.

Tau Beta Pi was founded in 1885 to mark, in a fitting manner, those who have conferred honor upon their alma mater by distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as undergraduates in engineering or by their attainments as alumni in the field of engineering. Tau Beta Pi also fosters a spirit of liberal culture in engineering colleges. It is the only engineering honor society representing the entire engineering profession. Membership in Tau Beta Pi is by invitation from our collegiate chapters. Undergraduate students must be in the top 1/8th of the junior class or the top 1/5th of the senior class to be eligible.

Please contact for information on ΤΒΠ.



Collegiate Wind Competition 

SU is one of 12 universities selected to compete in the 2018 Collegiate Wind Competition, an event supported by the Department of Energy and the National Renewable Energy Labs. Students will form interdisciplinary teams to develop technical and business plans for a marketable wind turbine. At the competition, the team will bring a scaled model of the turbine to undergo wind tunnel testing.
