Professional Societies

American Insitute of Chemical Engineers is a national organization that caters to the needs of Chemical Engineers. The organization fosters connections between Undergraduate students, Graduate students and Professions in the Chemical Engineering field. AIChE exists to promote excellence in the Chemical Engineering profession. The organization also strives to promote good ethics, diversity and lifelong development for Chemical Engineers.
The North­eastern BMES meets every Monday evening and offers a variety of ser­vices and oppor­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents inter­ested in bio­med­ical engi­neering. Each meeting wel­comes a new speaker, either from the uni­ver­sity com­mu­nity or industry, ranging from North­eastern fac­ulty with research oppor­tu­ni­ties to CEOs from major bio­med­ical device companies.
Enabling Engineering is a Northeastern University student group that applies engineering technologies to build low-cost devices that improve the lives of the elderly and individuals with physical or cognitive disabilities. Our goal is to empower affected individuals by giving them greater independence, reducing medical errors, and increasing social connectedness, at minimal cost.
EWB USA-NEU aids communities in developing countries by using engineering solutions to address basic human needs, such as the need for potable water – all the while supplying student members with educational, transformative experiences.
Engineering World Health is dedicated to improving global health through biomedical engineering. Through EWH, students develop the skills and knowledge to tackle technical and design challenges in global health.
The Northeastern Chapter of the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers focuses on connecting students with information, ideas, and opportunities in the biotech field.
The purpose of this student chapter is to build a cross-disciplinary community for students who are interested in acoustics and to provide an environment that enables first hand experience and sharing of ideas. NEUASA seeks to introduce students’ creativity into the equation, enriching the experience of learning acoustics, by understanding not only the final solution but the creative process as well. We host hands on projects, seminars, audiology talks and meet-ups.
The Society For Biomaterials is a multidisciplinary society of academic, healthcare, governmental and business professionals dedicated to promoting advancements in all aspects of biomaterial science, education and professional standards to enhance human health and quality of life. - See more at: http://biomaterials.org/about/about-society#sthash.YGwIVDRu.dpuf

Affinity Groups

The BESS mission is to form a network for and solidarity among student engineers, building a support system for engineers to ensure that they would stay in the field. In a means to counter the lack...
The Chemical Engineering Graduate Student Council (ChemE GSC) is a Committee made up of graduate students that work to enhance the overall experience for all ChE graduate students at Northeastern University by promoting both on and off campus student activities and communication throughout the department.
Generate is Northeastern University’s student-led product development studio. We contribute to the growth of start-ups at Northeastern University by educating engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs about product development and the integration of business and engineering.
GWISE is a group of graduate students and postdocs designed to assist in the professional and personal advancement of women in science and engineering at Northeastern University.
The Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers, Northeastern University Chapter (NU SHPE) is a professional organization whose goal is to enable Latinos in the New England area (including MA, ME, NH, VT and RI) to pursue, obtain and develop successful careers with top research and development, high-tech (i.e., hardware, software and IT services), and communications companies, as well as other science- and engineering-based organizations.
The Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE) was founded in November 2007 to help Asian heritage scientific and engineering professionals achieve their full potential. Organizations existed for other affinity groups - The National Society of Black Engineers, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, and the Society of Women Engineers – and there was a need for a similar organization where students representing all of the pan Asian cultures could connect and support each other.
Northeastern University Association of Gaming Enthusiasts (NUAGE) is a club that plays a wide variety of board games including strategic, logic, table-top, party, and social interactive games. Our specialty is quite literally fun and games!

SWE was established to have fun and promote women in engineering.

Competitions

ChemECar is a simple competition. The main goal is to build a car which is powered by a chemical reaction and stops at a given distance. The objectives are simple; however there are some restrictions that complicate the simplicity. For instance, the team may not use any mechanical or electrical breaking. The stopping mechanism therefore much be controlled through chemical kinetics.
iGEM is a an annual international synthetic biology competition. 200+ teams create artificial biological systems in living cells. The teams with the best or most advanced designs win. Projects often...

Honor Societies

A group of chemical engineering students at the University of Illinois met in 1931 to form an organization which would recognize those juniors and seniors who displayed academic excellence and leadership in their profession. They designed a key, petitioned for and received recognition from the University of Illinois administration, and became the Alpha Chapter of Omega Chi Epsilon. One year later, students at Iowa State University petitioned Alpha Chapter for a charter, which was granted, and the Beta Chapter was formally organized.
The Northeastern University chapter of Tau Beta Pi is an honor society encompassing every engineering discipline. The organization is devoted to helping engineers develop both technical skills and leadership abilities.
