In the School of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering, getting an engineering education begins in the classroom – but it definitely doesn’t end there. Getting involved in our award-winning clubs and professional societies, volunteering your time both locally and internationally, entering design competitions, going out on industry internships, working on research projects, and attending and presenting at professional conferences are other important springboards into the world of engineering.
Participating in extracurricular activities lets you put your hard-earned "book knowledge" to work in real-world situations. It's also a great way to hone your teamwork, communication, and leadership skills – and to gain an edge in the job market beyond graduation.
To realize the full value of your MIME education, be sure to take advantage of everything the school has to offer: challenging courses, excellent instructors, state-of-the-art instructional and research facilities, and countless opportunities for hands-on learning both inside and outside of the classroom.
