Student Opportunities and Services

Immerse yourself in extracurricular activities

Student organizations at Missouri State help you get involved, network, and have your voice heard. They also provide great opportunities to use what you learn in the classroom to gain experience outside of the classroom, as well as build your resume. Students run these organizations with the advisement of the Office of Student Engagement. Participating in and leading student organizations will help you make the most of your time here with so many ways to create memorable experiences at your fingertips. Get ahead by joining student chapters of the various professional associations present on campus.


American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)

ASME is an organization that promotes the practice of multidisciplinary engineering. Participation in ASME provides opportunities for collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development. ASME has more than 100,000 members in more than 140 countries. Thirty-two thousand of these members are students. Other members are early-career engineers, project managers, corporate executives, researchers and academic leaders. ASME's members are as diverse as the engineering community itself. ASME serves this wide-ranging technical community through quality programs in continuing education, training and professional development, codes and standards, research, conferences and publications, government relations and other forms of outreach. Missouri State's chapter is an organization for people interested in Mechanical Engineering and other STEM fields.

Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)

Missouri State's chapter of SAE participates in the Baja SAE collegiate series. In this competition, teams design, build, and race a Baja style dune buggy. MSU Baja is just one of over a hundred regularly competing teams in North America alone. Our team is built on the ideal of fostering engineering development in any student interested in furthering their growth. We pride ourselves on the open environment we create to allow students to push their creativity and do so in a collaborative manner. Get moving, get connected, and get engaged today with SAE.
