Student Groups

The Society of Women Engineers

The Society of Women Engineers is a professional organization that aims to support and promote women in achieving their full potential in engineering careers.

We support the professional development of our members through a variety of events including interviewing workshops, resume reviews, major advising, company information sessions, and the national and regional SWE conferences.

The Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers

The Society of Asian Scientist and Engineers (SASE): Our mission is to prepare Asian heritage students for success, promote diversity and tolerance, and provide career potential opportunities. In addition to professional development, SASE also encourages members to contribute to the enhancement of the communities in which they live.

The purpose of SASE is to advance the understanding of economic behavior across a broad range of academic disciplines; to support the intellectual exploration of economic behavior and its policy implications within the context of societal, institutional, historical, philosophical, psychological, and ethical factors; and to balance inductive and deductive approaches to the study of economic behavior at both micro and macro levels of analysis.

The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers

The concept of Networking was the key basis for the organization. SHPE quickly established two student chapters to begin the network that would grow to encompass the nation as well as reach countries outside the United States. Today, SHPE enjoys a strong but independent network of professional and student chapters throughout the nation.

Our UVa chapter serves to further these beliefs through our academic, professional, and recreational events on-grounds. We hope to expand our influence to all facets of the Charlottesville area and create a community that is Hispanic-inclusive, not exclusive.

National Society of Black Engineers

The mission of the National Society of Black Engineers is "to increase the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community."

Innovative project ideas are generated and implemented throughout the year on the chapter, regional and national levels. Some of NSBE's present activities include tutorial programs, group study sessions, high school/junior high outreach programs, technical seminars and workshops, a national communications network (NSBENET), two national magazines (NSBE Magazine and NSBE Bridge), an internal newsletter, a professional newsletter (Career Engineer, a supplement in NSBE Magazine), resume books, career fairs, awards, banquets and an annual national convention.
