Student Life

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 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.


SCE offers specialized engineering and computing organizations that give students a peek at career possibilities. Organizations offer activities, friendships, competitions and personal growth. Student societies put classroom theory into motion with hands-on action.

Many organizations collaborate with local professionals, giving students a chance to network during business tours, collaborative projects, guest speeches and annual conventions.

Start finding your voice by taking a leadership role with a student organization.

Honor Societies

Honor societies have a longstanding tradition of recognizing exceptional intellect and talent. At SCE, these prestigious organizations are open to upperclassmen by invitation only, with each honor society determining its selection criteria for academic excellence.

While membership in an honor society is a great resume enhancer, there are many other benefits. Honor societies can enhance the educational experience through mentoring and networking programs, community service projects and leadership training. Many also provide access to scholarship opportunities.
