Student Organizations

Chemical engineering students benefit from opportunities to join active and diverse student organizations.

The CBE department hosts a student chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineering (AIChE) and the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES).  The department office can provide interested students with contact information for each society.  The organizations publish meeting information through the department listserv and posters; new members  are always welcome to attend.

Engineering Students Services is the hub for several additional student organizations.  These include:

  • National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)
  • Engineers Without Borders (EWB)
  • Hispanic Engineering and Science Organization (HESO)
  • American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES)
  • Society for Women Engineers (SWE)
  • Women in Science and Engineering (WISE)

Students don't have to be part of an ethnic or minority group to participate, and the organizations accept students from other schools and colleges.  For more information, contact Engineering Student Services at (505) 277-4354.

Additionally, UNM is home to many fraternities, sororities, academic and special interest groups.  Explore the complete listing of organizations at the Student Activities website.
