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.

 

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.
