CEE Student Organizations
American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
Students are encouraged to join this professional society as freshmen. Through regular monthly meetings and community projects, students learn more about the field of civil engineering, meet other CIVE students and become involved in the community. Students are also encouraged to participate in the Concrete Canoe and Steel Bridge Competitions held at regional and national competitions each year. These competitions allow students to apply engineering concepts learned in the classroom to real-life activities. Find the Lincoln section on Facebook at facebook.com/huskerasce and the Omaha section on Twitter at twitter.com/UNO_ASCE.
American Water Works Association/Water Environment Federation (AWWA/WEF)
Undergraduate and graduate students interested in the environmental engineering field are encouraged to participate. The student chapter hosts regular meeting, field trips, and social events during the academic year.
As juniors or seniors, civil engineering students are elected to this national honor society. Regular meetings are held and members assist the department with various service functions.
By recognizing outstanding students and graduates for their scholarship, character, practicality and sociability, Chi Epsilon seeks to foster excellence, connectivity and engagement among those in the civil engineering community to improve our world.”
Civil Engineering Graduate Student Association
Campus: City Campus (Lincoln) / Scott Campus (Omaha)
CIVE Graduate Students Association (CIVE GSA) is a student-run and student-elected organization that exercises the student governance of affairs and collaborations, solely involving graduate students at the Civil Engineering Department of UNL.
Most notably, CIVE GSA is a space that takes action around issues that graduate students are concerned about and aims to promote student advocacy on a departmental level. Involvement in CIVE GSA is a great way to gain leadership experience and to learn about the administration.
Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI)
The objective of the chapter is to encourage and inform the students in reducing earthquake risk by advancing the science and practice of earthquake engineering by improving understanding of the impact of earthquakes on the physical, social, economic, political and cultural environment, and by advocating comprehensive and realistic measures for reducing the harmful effects of earthquakes.
Engineers Without Borders
The University of Nebraska student chapter of EWB-USA is a student-run organization with members from both Lincoln and Omaha campuses and strong support of engineering firms and UNL & UNO alums. Our student chapter works in Madagascar in partnership with the Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership, an offshoot of the Henry Doorly Zoo's conservation work in Madagascar. Our projects in Madagascar are focused on solar energy solutions, and improved water quality and quantity. We also work with community organizations in both Lincoln and Omaha on various community service projects.
We would love to have you join one of our three teams! Email firstname.lastname@example.org
for information on specific team meetings and how to get involved.
Institute for Transportation Engineers (ITE)
Bridge the gap between your academic and professional career...join the Institute of Transportation Engineers! ITE Student Chapter gives you the opportunity to...become involved in high profile transportation issues in the Midwest, interact with professionals responsible for finding solutions to the increasing demand on our transportation infrastructure, discover an interest in a challenging and dynamic career, and spend time with your friends and future colleagues. This is a professional society for civil engineers who are planning to specialize in transportation engineering. Regular monthly meetings are held.
Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
The purpose of this international, professional society is to inform young women, their parents, school counselors and the public of the opportunities available to women in engineering. A major function of the organization is to facilitate contact between students and women engineers and to give women in the college an opportunity to meet and interact with their peers and professional engineers.
Structural Engineering Student Association (SESA)
Tau Beta Pi
Tau Beta Pi is an honor society that encourages academic excellence and professional integrity across the engineering profession. We organize and participate in engineering-related and service events each year at UNL, UNO, and their communities. Alumni chapters and members offer networking opportunities and professional resources beyond graduation. If you'd like to know more, reach out to email@example.com!
UNL Robotics Club
Campus: Lincoln (City and East Campus)
Contact: Club Email
UNL Robotics Club is an engineering RSO that focuses on design, develop, and build robots and robotics application and participates in annual international robotics competitions. The Robotics Club was founded in 2017 from the 2016 robotics team "Huskerbot". We are a group of robotics enthusiasts that are interested in developing our skills by designing and building robots.
We are inclusive to all engineering disciplines, including but not limited to agricultural, biological system, computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering as well as computer science. It requires people from different fields and expertise to build a fully functional robot. All experience levels are welcome!
