Student Clubs & Organizations

American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning

American Society of Highway Engineers



The goal of the ASHE Temple University chapter coincides with that of the regional section and national organization, which is to provide a forum for members and partners of the highway industry to promote a safe, efficient and sustainable highway system through education, innovation and fellowship. In an effort to learn more about transportation, we want to provide students the opportunity to connect with professionals and gain first hand access and knowledge of our current and future infrastructure needs.

American Society of Mechanical Engineers


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. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 140,000 members in 151 countries. Thirty-thousand of these members are students.


Biomedical Engineering Society



The purpose of this club is to allow the vast number of Biomedical engineering students at Temple University to connect with other biomedical engineering students. Furthermore, it shall provide the members with opportunity interact with companies in that field, by inviting speakers to become more acquainted with the professional environment of biomedical engineers, as well as interacting with the regional universities’ BMES to build a better network circle for members.


OwlConnect - BMES

Construction Management Student Organization 


Temple Robotics



The purpose of this organization is to gather students from a multitude of majors and participate in collegiate robotics competitions. The organization will build, design, and enter the robots in competitions held across the United States and/or worldwide depending on financial standing. Students will work together to promote cooperation within the departments and learning about robot building and programming practices. In addition to collegiate competitions, members shall volunteer their time at local high schools to inspire the community through robotics projects and competitions.

Engineers Without Borders


Engineers Without Borders-USA (EWB-USA) is a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities worldwide in order to improve their quality of life. We provide the basics of life such as water and shelter, using appropriate and sustainable technology. More importantly though, we help people help themselves. Our unique model includes a rigorous technical and cultural assessment, community involvement, and a five-year commitment to each community we are privileged to serve. Dedicated professionals and aspiring college students form the backbone of EWB, with invaluable help from corporations, Non-Government Organizations, and other supporters.


Eta Kappa Nu Honor Society



IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN) is the honor society of IEEE and is dedicated to encouraging and recognizing individual excellence in education and meritorious work in professional practice in any of the areas within the IEEE-designated fields of interest.

Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers


Temple University's IEEE branch is a sub-division of IEEE as a whole. As such we perform all the duties of our main organization ( and more. At our branch we plan to serve as a non-academic equivalent to the students academic experience at Temple University. In other words, we plan to: 

  • Improve the average students professional etiquette, by organizing professional awareness conferences.
  • Serve as a link between our students and the real engineering world, creating valuable networks that will serve us in the future.
  • Encourage and educate our students about their chosen field, through organizing field trips and showing education videos, as well as hosting successful speakers from industry.
  • IEEE,Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, is a non-profit organization and the world`s leading professional association for the advancement of technology with over 350,000 members.

National Society of Black Engineers



The National Society of Black Engineers is committed to serving the community and creating and building leaders. We strive to make sure our students are achieving academic excellence through implementation of study nights and our retention program. We want to make sure that students also develop professionally and bring in corporate sponsors to critique resumes and improve their soft skills.

Society of Automative Engineers (Temple Formula Racing)


Formula SAE is a design based competition where students are told to produce an open wheel formula style race car for the “average weekend racer”. In competition students select an engine from an assortment of motorcycle engines as the backbone of their car. Temple University will be using a 2009 Yamaha R6 600cc engine, which although is great when preforming at its optimum efficiency, it is not built for the parameters of this race. The transmission and powertrain system is built more for the top end of the bike, meaning it has the best torque and acceleration at around 50 mph. However in competition we never reach higher than about 30mph, which makes this engine unfitting for the events of Formula SAE. We will solve this problem by designing a transmission that is more suitable for the SAE race style, gearing down the transmission system and still obtaining optimum power from the engine.


Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers


Our student chapter strives to be positive leaders, role models and mentors throughout our school and community, especially in our surrounding Hispanic community. We focus on developing our members on a personal and professional level, as well as widening their networking circle.

Society of Women Engineers



The Society of Women Engineers, SWE, is a national educational and service organization. Its members include both students and professionals, who work together to help women advance in the field of engineering. Also, we want to help women and girls with their studies to achieve their goals. This society continues to progress by utilizing development programs, networking opportunities, and scholarships.
