M.E. Student Advisory Board

The department established its first Student Advisory Board (SAB) in the spring 2005 semester. The purpose of the Student Advisory Board is to document feedback from students for accreditation purposes as well as for the department, and to try and integrate the different classes (freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors). Board convenes once per semester.

Robotics Club

Robotics Club

The mission of the UNH Robotics Club is to provide an educational and inspirational experience for UNH students by using FIRST programs as an outlet for students to apply their classroom knowledge and gain real-world experiences, and to provide a service to the community. The members of the UNH Robotics Club engage in FIRST programs by acting as positive role models, sharing their appreciation of science and technology with 9-18 year olds. This allows the middle and high school students to experience science and technological fields and envision these fields in their future.

Those students who wish to find out more information about this club should contact the faculty advisor, Prof. Brad Kinsey at bkinsey@unh.edu.


Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)SAE1.png

The UNH Chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) provides students with an opportunity to explore the fields of transportation and aerospace engineering with others who share similar interests. This is a student organization which works closely with a faculty advisor to arrange tours, guest speakers, and student projects related to these fields. Student members also receive a monthly magazine and newsletter published by SAE as well as notifications of conferences and publications related to the transportation industry. The cornerstones of the UNH SAE Chapter are the annual Mini-Baja and the Formula SAE projects.

Society of Women Engineers (SWE)

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) maintains an active student section on campus. Outreach programs to local high schools and seminars by outside speakers are included in their yearly activities.

Its mission is to encourage, support and implement environmentally and economically sustainable technical projects in disadvantaged communities nationally and internationally, while developing globally responsible and knowledgeable students.

Tau Beta Pi

There is an active chapter of Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honor society, in the college. Outstanding students from all four engineering departments who meet the rigorous academic standards are eligible. The society performs a number of community outreach projects each year. They have also established the Outstanding Engineering Teacher's Award which is given to one faculty member in each engineering department on an annual basis.
