Resources for Current Students

Lots of opportunities and resources exist for engineering students at Benedictine College. Here are just a few...

Clubs

Get involved! Check out these student organizations specifically for engineering majors.

Engineering Club

The Engineering Club is open to all of the engineering disciplines at Benedictine. This club focuses on building community throughout the department and providing a network for career advancement after students leave Benedictine College. Interested students are encouraged to join the Engineering Club on the BC app, where they can receive updates and learn about events. For more information, contact Brett Burke or Ben Suhr.

During the upcoming academic year, the club will be sponsoring a local service project, fall and spring picnic, Christmas party, t-shirt contest, and Scholarship Rodeo among many other opportunities to enrich the BC engineering community.

AIChE Student Chapter

Chartered in 2018, the Benedictine College AIChE (American Institute of Chemical Engineering) Student Chapter is an association of chemical engineering majors. All interested engineering majors are welcome to join. Contact Joseph Barnes for more information.

ASCE Student Chapter

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) provides “knowledge and opportunities you’ll need to jump into the industry, get on the right career path, and have fun doing it.” The Benedictine College chapter has many ways for you to get involved including: K-12 outreach activities to local schools, leadership training opportunities, social events with other student chapters, and annual participation in the ASCE regional student competitions, including the concrete canoe competition. Please contact our student chapter president, Kristy Nixon, for more information.

Projects

Want to get your hands dirty on a project in true engineering fashion? Many teams would be glad of an extra pair of hands. Or maybe you already have an idea of your own! The engineering department encourages students to get involved in hands-on projects. Talk to your advisor about your interest and ideas.

Mission trips

Interested in going on mission? Join your fellow ravens in using your engineering skills to help others.

Tutoring

Need homework help? Come visit the engineering tutors! During the academic year, they are found in Westerman from 7-9pm, Sunday through Thursday. If these times don’t work, you can also make an appointment.

Work-Study

Looking for a work-study job? Or just want to make some extra cash? The engineering department depends on student employees as shop stewards, graders, tutors and more. If interested, contact Jann McGregor or Professor Steve Spencer.

Other Resources

On Blackboard, you should have access to a “class” called “Engineering Student Resources.” There you can find many useful links including information on using the shop and the 3D printers.
