Student Clubs & Projects

It is often said that engineering is a team sport—and one way of getting the most out of your U of A engineering education is to get involved with your fellow students. Joining clubs and taking part in extracurricular activities helps you learn to work in groups, develop leadership skills, and allows you to learn from other students.

As an engineering student, you have many opportunities to indulge your passions and discover new areas of interest. Whether you end up in student governance or designing and building as part of one of our student vehicle projects, the time you invest in finding the group that’s right for you is well worth it.
