Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering

MNE Student Organizations & Creative Inquiry Teams

Students apply their knowledge and skills through student organizations and creative inquiry teams. The real-world experience students receive gives them the leadership, teamwork and technical skills that are sought after by employers. There are several organizations that are directly related to the mechanical and nuclear engineering department.

See a full list of the Carl R. Ice College of Engineering Student Organizations (including Honorary Societies, Creative Inquiry Teams, Engineering Leadership, Engineering Ambassadors, Engineering Student Council, and Steel Ring).

AIAA Unmanned Aerial Systems Team
The Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Team uses unmanned aerial vehicles to solve complex missions.  

American Nuclear Society (ANS)
The KSU student section of the American Nuclear Society. We contribute toward the development of nuclear science through monthly meetings, research and spreading nuclear awareness.

American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
ASME is a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods.

Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)
The KSU Chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers is dedicated to the education of students interested in the automotive or aerospace industry.

SAE Aero Team
The Aero team designs and builds a remote-controlled model aircraft to fly with a maximum payload for competition.

SAE Baja Team
The Baja team designs, builds and tests a prototype of an off-road recreational vehicle and races it in national competitions.
