Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers
Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) student membership is an ideal way to learn more about the electrical engineering profession. IEEE is a worldwide technical professional society devoted to advancing the theory and application of electrical engineering electronics and computing. Members receive several publications devoted to topics of special interest to students about choosing an area of specialization, the job market, graduate school and more.
Institute of Industrial Engineers
Knowledge is power in industrial engineering. Building the knowledge that will sustain you throughout your career begins with IIE. IIENet.org is an invaluable resource to all IE members for news, research information, and networking. It gives users access to the Resource Library, Career Center, IE Terminology Database, Societies & Divisions, and Discussion Center. IIE Conferences and Seminars keep you current of the latest trends and technologies. Learn more about the Institute of Industrial Engineers at Wright State University.
The IEEE Computer Society's vision is to be the leading provider of technical information and services to the world's computing professionals. The society is dedicated to advancing the theory, practice, and application of computer and information processing technology. Through its conferences, application-related, and research-oriented journals, local and student chapters, technical committees, and standards working groups, the Society promotes an active exchange of information, ideas, and technological innovation among its members.
Materials Science and Engineering Society
Everything is made from materials, so materials knowledge is valuable to each and every engineering discipline. Materials Science and Engineering Society is Wright State’s chapter of Material Advantage. Material Advantage is a student society that allows members to also become members of The American Ceramic Society (ACS), The Association for Iron and Steel Technology (AIST), ASM International and The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS). Membership is open to any student interested in materials, not just materials engineering majors
The focus of the WSU student section of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE is building vehicles for the SAE Aero Design and SAE Baja Design competitions. In SAE Aero Design student conceive, design, fabricate and test a cargo carrying RC aircraft. The final designs compete with other universities designs at a national competition. In SAE Baja Design students design, build and test a four wheel off road vehicle. The completed vehicle competes against other universalities vehicles at a national competition.
