Involvement in student organizations, especially organizations related to your field of study, has many benefits:
Many student organizations are branches of national professional societies. Please join organizations that interest you. Don’t feel limited to organizations in your own field of study. Much of engineering is interdisciplinary and student organizations offer a simple way to get a taste of many areas of engineering.
ACET is the combination of two national student chapters of National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and Associated General Contractors (AGC). Being a member of ACET allows students to be part of both student chapters and compete in both residential and commercial competitions.
