The College of Engineering - Electrical & Computer Engineering
Student Clubs and Extracurricular Activities
Rowan ECE students are an active bunch! They participate in a variety of activities and belong to several different professional organizations. The most active clubs include:
Rowan IEEE Student Branch
IEEE is the largest professional organization in the world (of any profession!) with over 400,000 members worldwide. Rowan’s IEEE Student Branch is an officially recognized branch by IEEE and they take part in a bewildering array of activities, competitions, and social events.
Among the many competitions Rowan IEEE Student Chapter competes, perhaps none creates as much excitement, anticipation (and, well, loss of sleep!) as the annual IEEE Micromouse competition. Taking place in the IEEE’s annual Student Activities Conference, this competition requires the the competing teams to build a robotic mouse, dropped into a maze (whose structure in previously unknown to the competing teams). The mouse that gets out of the maze successfully and does so in the shortest amount of time is the winning mouse. Rowan’s IEEE Student Chapter competes in Region 2 (including mid atlantic states – Pennsylvania, South Jersey, Virgina, Maryland, Ohio and West Virgina), and has won this competition several times.
Rowan IEEE Student Branch will be hosting the 2014 Student Activities Conference.
Other activities organized by IEEE include game night and tournaments, tutoring services, various fund raisers and other activites co-organized by other clubs, such as Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) and Society for Women Engineers (SWE).
You can follow the Rowan IEEE Student Branch activities from their webpage at www.rowan.edu/clubs/ieee.
Robotics and Automation Society (RAS)
Society for Women Engineers (SWE)
SWE is an organization that encourages women to achive full potential in careers as engineers and leaders. SWE members seek to expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life and the value of diversity. Rowan SWE chapter is quite active and organizes many events throughout the year (and not just for women!).
