Student Organizations

The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences has many opportuinities for students to be involved with STEM-related student organizations. For a comprenesive directory of organizations and their contacts at UNH, please visit here.

American Institute of Chemical Engineers

The American Institute of Chemical Engineers UNH student chapter serves as a resource to chemical and bio engineers. This organization provides networking and professional development opportunities through student meetings, guest speakers, trips, tutoring, and regional and national conferences. 

UNH Autonomous Surface Vehicle

We are a multidisciplinary, multi-year team of students building an intelligent, self driving boat for numerous maritime applications. We are developing a fleet of robots capable of coordinated tasks and multi-platform deployment and communication; the long term implications of which are vast and varied in the industries that they effect.

Cyber Security Club

The Cyber Security Club brings together individuals interested in aspects of privacy and security within various technologies. Club activities are focused around developing skills used in professional Information Security engagements, which are then put to use in several regional and National competitions that place throughout the school year.

DIY Engineering

DIY Engineering is a multidisciplinary student organization enabling students to explore fields of interests through real world collaborative projects. We conduct multiple projects per year, taking them from the design phase to the implementation phase and choose our projects by looking at member interest.


UNH ET-NavSwarm is a multidisciplinary, multi-year team of students who's goal is to design a fleet of fully autonomous, land roaming robots. These robots work as a team to search a rugged terrain through GPS navigation as well as inter-robot communication. Through this effort, we are hoping to create a platform in aiding space exploration and searching methods.

EWRI (Environmental and Water Resources Institute)

UNH-EWRI is focused on providing extracurricular learning and networking opportunities for environmental and water resources engineering students. Our main goal is to expand the opportunities of our student members while promoting environmental awareness and sustainability at UNH and beyond. EWRI hosts professional networking panels, peer bonding activities and a variety of other valuable events throughout the semester.

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)

IEEE UNH student branch will be dedicated to exploring the electronics field beyond the classroom including but not limited to, additional projects, lab visits, and presentations from companies outside of UNH. The goal of the group is to promote the growth of the future engineers of the world, and to speed the advancement of technology as well as increase general awareness of what is happening in the technological fields. Any interested student is invited to partake and urged to come to the meetings and events.

International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE)-UNH

The International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) is the largest life science professional association in the world, we are a network of pharmaceutical & biotech professionals, students, and scientists that are dedicated to providing career development and educational resources to our members. ISPE is not just for engineers, we are the single most useful resource for any science related major who is interested in starting a career in life sciences. ISPE UNH is on track to be the largest student chapter in the world; we are growing fast, and always looking for new student members, especially those who are looking to take on chapter responsibilities. 

Linux Club

The Linux Club is an Open Source community built on the premise of sharing knowledge and experience of the Linux operating system environment with others. Club activities include weekly presentations on topics of interest selected by club members, as well as break-out groups to provide technical support to peers, and also to participate in activities that provide hands-on experience.


The UNH LunaCats is an interdisciplinary team of students devoted to the design and construction a martian mining robot for NASA's Robotic Mining Competition (RMC). The team also performs outreach in the local area to get kids excited about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE)

UNH Chapter of SASE is professional student organization to support Pan-Asian STEM students by providing opportunities for professional development such as career workshops, signature events, and site visits to local companies; and host cultural events. Our mission is to prepare Asian heritage scientists, engineers and technologists for success in the global business world, celebrate diversity on campuses and in the workplace, and to provide opportunities for members to make contributions to their local communities. We welcome everyone in the UNH community who are interested to be involved with SASE. 

National Society of Black Engineers

NSBE is a non-profit, student-run organization dedicated to the academic and professional success of multicultural engineering and technical students. NSBE-UNH is open to all and we aim to work collaboratively with faculty, staff, and other organizations here on campus for the betterment of all UNH students. Together let us all live our motto “to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community” proactively here at UNH and in the state of New Hampshire.

Society of Physics Students

SPS is a group of physics undergraduate students and anyone else who strive to bring the UNH physics community together and connect undergraduate interests with faculty and university resources.

Society of Women Engineers

The Society of Women Engineers is a non-profit group at UNH that allows students to strive in many ways. We are very involved in fundraising, connecting with professionals, outreach with the local community, and public relations.

Tau Beta Pi

Tau Beta Pi is the only engineering honor society representing the entire engineering profession. It is the nation's second-oldest honor society, founded at Lehigh University in 1885 to mark in a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their Alma Mater by distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as students in engineering.


TechX is a community for technological ventures. This multidisciplinary student organization is focused on building connections between people, ideas, and technology required to electrify a start-up company. We hold bi-weekly meetings located in the UNH ECenter. There is no experience required and all majors are welcome. 

NH Robotics Club

For students interested in the field of robotics! Current robotics projects include the VEX Robotics Competition and numerous outreach opportunities.
