Student organizations in Engineering help connect classroom and career, develop professionalism, increase technical proficiency, and refine ethical judgment. Some organizations are involved in community service; many involve teams that compete in intramural soccer, football, hockey, and softball games; and a few manage coffee shops on weekday mornings in the departmental lounges. A complete listing of student organizations is available here: orgsync.rso.cornell.edu.
