What are some clubs or activities you would recommend for college experience if I want to be an engineer?
Wondering which extracurricular activities might look best on a resume once I graduate college for an engineering career. #engineering #mechanical-engineering #civil-engineering #architecture #structural-engineering #architectural-engineering
you did not say what type of engineer so adjust my ideas accordingly
1. be a member of WEF water environment federation, student membership cheap, civil/environmental
2. attend WEF monthly meeting if held nearby, rub elbows with engineers
3. join civil engineering national group, attend monthly meetings
4. attend a state engineering conference, held yearly
5. join chemical engineer society
6. learn auto CAD
7. take EIT exam as soon as eligible
8. join school engineering clubs
9. summer coop at local engineer consulting firm
Depending on your interests, some of the things people do in Maker Spaces may be a good fit
As stated by others, it does depend on your discipline. But any activity that shows your passion for the your area of interest helps.
