Student groups are an important part of the community in mechanical engineering, providing opportunities outside the classroom for students to make new connections, discover and develop their individual skills and abilities, learn from their peers and interact with alumni and corporate representatives. And with more than 80 student groups across the Cockrell School, there is something for everyone.
