American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)

ASME is an organization that bridges the gap between school and the professional world. We try to inform students of the different routes they can take once they graduate. We do this by bringing in guest speakers, going on field trips, and having information sessions. People can join by paying their dues and signing the roster at any meeting.  Dues are $10.00. 


American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)

ASCE is an organization that prepares their members for the professional world. We strive to inform students of the different opportunities they have once they graduate. We do this by attending ASCE conferences, bringing in professionals that speak about real world experience, and having information sessions about Civil Engineering. People can join by paying their dues, signing the roster, and attending a meeting.



American Computing Machines (ACM)

The WTACM, West Texas A&M chapter of Association for Computing Machinery, is an organization in which students gain access to an expansive network of computing resources, including software, education resources, and career opportunities. Benefits include access to operating systems and other software at free or reduced prices, access to libraries of content regarding software engineering and computing, online courses and books, and career and job resources. The WT chapter of ACM is sponsored by H. Paul Haiduk.

Students can request information about joining the national chapter of ACM by visiting the Membership Information Request Form. To join the student chapter, students must attend one of the monthly meetings in the ECS building.



Engineers Without Borders (EWB)

The mission statement of EWB is to ‘Support community-driven development programs worldwide by collaborating with local partners to design and implement sustainable engineering projects, while creating transformative experiences and responsible leaders.’  EWB would provide opportunities to serve others in need through practical engineering projects while also giving a global perspective on responsible citizenship.



American Academy for Environmental Engineers and Scientists (AAEES)

AAEES strives to provide students with real world experiences in the Environmental Engineering discipline. Organization activities include site visits, guest speakers, and volunteer opportunities. The organization is currently working to fight food insecurity in the Texas Panhandle by partnering with the High Plains Food Bank and a local elementary school. Membership fees are $20 and cover the cost of an AAEES shirt.
