Student Organizations

ITP Students in the Telecom lab

ITP students take part in the following student organizations, which 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.

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

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.

Engineering Fellows

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.

CU Energy Club

The Club connects the energy and imagination of students at the University of Colorado Boulder to the emerging industries of renewable energy and clean technology.

Telecom Student Organization

The purpose of the TSO is to serve as a forum for Graduate Interdisciplinary Telecommunications Students for discussion and activities related to Corporate and Faculty Relations, Curriculum Advice, Events Management and Merchandise Acquisition.

Professional Societies

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.

Honor Societies

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.

  • Chi Epsilon (civil engineering)

  • Eta Kappa Nu (electrical engineering)

  • Omega Chi Epsilon (chemical engineering)

  • Pi Tau Sigma (mechanical engineering)

  • Sigma Gamma Tau (aerospace engineering)

  • Tau Beta Pi (all engineering)
