MME - Student Organizations
AIAA University of Nebraska Chapter
The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) student branch at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln was started in 2008. The purpose of the branch is to encourage students to learn more about aerospace news, history, education and careers, and to provide opportunities for students to participate in aerospace projects and design competitions.
American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
As members of this professional society, students are given the opportunity to stay informed regarding recent developments in the field of mechanical engineering through publications, field trips and meetings. Fellowship is also enhanced through interaction with other student sections as well as professional sectors of the society.
Husker Motorsports, Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)
Husker Motorsports challenges students to design and build a formula-style racing car from the ground up. Our car will compete with more than 250 universities internationally. Our goal is to build a race car that will be competitive with veteran universities.
Husker Racing, Baja Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)
Baja SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) consists of three regional competitions that simulate real-world engineering design projects and their related challenges. Engineering students are tasked to design and build an off-road vehicle that will survive the severe punishment of rough terrain and sometimes even water.
Pi Tau Sigma
Presently, there are 129 active chapters of this honorary fraternity at universities in almost every state of the United States. The UNL Chapter is also a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. Some of the objectives of this fraternity are to foster high ideals in the engineering profession, to stimulate and support departmental activities, to promote professional welfare and to develop leadership and citizenship.
Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)
The students, through their elected officers, administer concerns of the chapter. Offers are counseled by the SAE Faculty Adviser and receive the cooperation of the Vice-Chairperson for Student Activities of the SAE Activities Committee through SAE Headquarters. Individuals are invited to speak and/or make presentations about relevant topics and tours of interest are taken.
