NU BAJA is a team of student engineers that design, fabricate, and race a custom off-road vehicle in the Baja SAE Collegiate Design Series.

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...
GEB aims to promote the relationship among all graduate engineers at Northesatern, fostering an atmostphere of teamwork and creativity. GEB focuses on the development of the entire graduate engineering community and through its various programs aims to improve the personal and professional lives of graduate engineering students studying at NEU.
The Northeastern ECE PhD Student Association fosters a supportive community among doctoral students in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering by creating opportunities for academic enrichment, professional development, and socializing.
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!
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.
oSTEM is an organization that fosters leadership for LGBTQIA+ communities within STEM fields.
SWE was established to have fun and promote women in engineering.

Professional Societies

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.
The IEEE (Eye-triple-E) is a non-profit, technical professional association of more than 365,000 individual members in approximately 150 countries. Through its members, the IEEE continues to be a leading authority in technical areas ranging from computer engineering, biomedical technology and telecommunications, to electric power, aerospace engineering and consumer electronics, among others. Through its technical publishing, conferences and consensus-based standards activities, the IEEE: produces 30 percent of the world's published literature in electrical and electronics engineering, and computer science areas; holds annually more than 300 major conferences and has nearly 900 active standards with almost 500 under development.
NU Wireless Club is a electronics experimentation club, where students from all disciplines can meet to work on projects and learn electronics through hands-on application. The club features a members exclusive lab space and a full amateur radio station.
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.
PESNU is the Northeastern University student chapter of the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES). It shares the same goal as PES to provide scientific and engineering information on electric power and energy for the betterment of society, and the preferred professional development source for its members.
The goal SAE at Northeastern University's SAE chapter is to provide students with an opportunity to study of automobiles outside of the class room. The club allows students a chance to take their knowledge from the classroom and apply it to automobiles. Seeing, feeling, and modifying parts allows them to develop a much deeper understanding for how and why each of a vehicle’s systems and their components work.
