Student Organizations

The purpose of this organization is to promote interest in Amateur Radio and related areas, to provide operating facilities for its members, to provide members of the University family with an additional means of communication in times of need, and to promote amateur radio in the local community.

The Electronics Design Club (E-Club) focuses on the development and application of the real word electronic and computer development. E-Club is open for all KSU students and faculty. The only requirement is the desire for knowledge. The E-Club allows its members who are working on projects to come and ask questions and get help from the community. This open sharing of knowledge allows members to accomplish tasks they would not have before. Projects are entirely member driven, with support from other members and faculty.

The Student Chapter of Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) at Kansas State University is a registered student organization that focuses on the applications and methods of engineering into medicine, biology, and other disciplines. It leads students to recognize the dynamic field of bio-engineering and provides means of student participation with senior design projects and outreach faculty committees. Throughout these efforts not only do the student's involvement with professors increase but also the involvement of graduate students along with world-recognized educators enhance with each project.

Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is an international Electrical Engineering & Computer Engineering honor society with chapters at approximately 200 locations in the United States, Europe, and Asia. While one goal of the society is the stimulation and reward of scholarship, Eta Kappa Nu has a far broader purpose than merely to award a badge of distinction to scholars. Eta Kappa Nu and its members are dedicated to helping fellow members and non-members alike, improve the standards of the profession, the courses of instruction, and the institution in general, where its chapters are established.

The purpose of KSU IEEE Student Branch shall be the dissemination of knowledge of the theory and practice of all aspects of electrical engineering, electronics, radio, allied branches of engineering or the related arts and sciences, as well as the furtherance of the professional development of the student.

The Multicultural Engineering Program (MEP), as part of the Dean's Office of the Kansas State University College of Engineering, is a comprehensive program designed to identify, recruit, educate, and graduate Black, Hispanic, and Native American students who have an aptitude for math or science.

The mission of Powercat Masters Toastmasters is to provide mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every member has an opportunity to develop oral communication and leadership which in turn fosters self-confidence and personal growth.

Kansas State University Robotic Competition Team started as a group of students interested in Battlebots. That show is now off the air, and the grass roots organization that started it has come back to life. The idea behind KSURCT is to provide a venue for creative, inventive and industrious students to participate in robotic competitions against other universities or teams. Currently few university teams exist; we are hoping to change that!! In the mean time we compete at robotic combat competitions held across the nation.

SHPE promotes the development of Hispanics in enginering, science and other technical professions to achieve educational excellence, economic opportunity and social equity.

The purpose of the Society of Women Engineers (Collegiate Section) is to be a support system, designed to increase each member's understanding of engineering and to enhance their professionalism.

Tau Beta Pi is the only engineering honor society representing the entire engineering profession. It is the nation's second-oldest honor society, founded at Lehigh University in 1885 to recognize students of distinguished scholarship and exemplary character.

The Women in Engineering and Science Program at Kansas State University is a cooperative effort between the Colleges of Engineering and Arts & Sciences and is designed to cultivate the science and technology interests of women from the middle school through postgraduate levels.
