At SCE, the college experience extends beyond the classroom. More than 20 teams and organizations dedicated to computing and engineering help students find their niches, and lifelong friendships are forged during late-night brainstorming sessions.
All year around you can find students relaxing in the Flarsheim lounges and working in the 24/7 computer labs. Picnics and other events are held at SCE throughout the year. Each February, an SCE tradition gets under way to celebrate National Engineers Week (E-Week) with games, competitions and other festivities.

Student teams work throughout the year to build robots and human-powered vehicles or to solve algorithmic programming problems. The diverse teams at SCE give students a chance to test their academic knowledge with real-world projects. The teams compete for bragging rights against rival colleges and universities.
SCE student organizations do everything from improve drinking water in third-world countries to promote STEM careers and advocate for diversity. Members have the opportunity to work in area high school classrooms to promote engineering and computing. Additionally, members gain insight on different careers and have a chance to network with many professionals. The next job offer could be waiting.
“E-Week celebrates the positive contributions engineers make to society and is a catalyst for outreach across the country to kids and adults alike. Engineers Week is a part of many corporate and government cultures and is celebrated on every U.S. engineering college campus.” (National Engineers Week Foundation)
SCE looks forward to celebrating E-Week each February.
SCE honor societies recognize academic excellence. The programs also connect members to community service projects, mentoring, leadership training and more. Many provide scholarship opportunities and give students an edge in the job search. Membership is by invitation, and each honor society determines its selection criteria.
