Your learning doesn't stop when class is over. The Department of Technology is home to many student organizations that help our students network with their peers and professionals.
The Illinois State student chapter of IEEE provides Computer Systems Technology students the opportunity to collaborate with others in their major, attend field trips and conferences, and participate in competitions. Meetings are held regularly throughout the semester.
The Construction Management Student Association (CMSA) is a highly active student organization that enhances educational experiences and career opportunities through professional networking. CMSA serves as the umbrella group for student chapters associated with the professional construction organizations listed below. CMSA facilitates extracurricular field trips, speaker meetings, career events, community service, and social events. Several of these organizations also sponsor scholarships and construction management competitions for students.
The name of the affiliated student chapter is in parentheses if different from the professional organization.
The Engineering Technology (ET) Club is an ISU registered student organization (RSO) with the goal of allowing the students to pursue their skills and knowledge in a fun alternative environment outside the classroom. This is achieved through regularly scheduled meetings with key-note speakers, field trips, national competitions, and other group activities.
The Illinois State student chapter of GCEA provides students with a wide range of career-building opportunities. In addition to connecting socially and professionally with other students who are serious about their major, students can attend field trips, manage live production projects, and network with current professionals.
Students involved in GCEA gain experience managing real production jobs. Many of the T-shirts, can coolies, and Frisbees made for campus organizations are custom designed and produced by GCEA's production team.
The Renewable Energy Society (RES) is comprised of students, faculty, and community members who see renewable energy solutions as the key to a sustainable future, a functioning economy, and to elevating our communities and our country to a position of leadership in a global crisis.
The Student Environmental Action Coalition (SEAC) works to protect the environment and our future. They strive to educate the campus and the local community about the environmental problems created by modern society.
The Technology & Engineering Education Collegiate Association (TEECA) is the pre-professional organization for Technology and Engineering Education majors. TEECA students develop professional leadership skills by volunteering for department events, working for Habitat for Humanity, interacting with junior high and high school students, and attending conferences. TEECA members develop knowledge of the curriculum through participation in TEECA competitive events.
