At Messiah University, you’ll find plenty of ways to connect with other engineers.
Living Learning Community
First-year engineering students are invited to consider living on an engineering-focused dormitory floor. This creates an organic opportunity for friendships and study partnerships between incoming engineering students.
For many engineering students, the significant activity related to their major is their Collaboratory project. While project involvement is built into the curriculum, many students choose to invest more deeply than is minimally required. For example, underclass engineering students often get involved with project teams on an extra-curricular basis. This provides an opportunity to explore various engineering disciplines while connecting socially and spiritually with other students. The Collaboratory also offers a weekly discipleship program that energizes many engineering students.
Society of Women Engineers
The Society of Women Engineers at Messiah University (SWE) is an official chapter of the national organization. We are a community of women engineering students and faculty who are dedicated to serving God through community fellowship and the expansion of engineering services. Our mission is to “Prepare female engineering students to be successful by developing social, professional, and networking skills, serve the community to foster relationships and educate future engineers, and demonstrate the value of being Christian leaders in engineering and technology.” We strive to fulfill our mission through events and activities focusing on professional development and building community.

American Society of Civil Engineers
The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is a professional society advocating for the professional interests of Civil engineers. The student chapter at Messiah University focuses on field trips that provide students with perspective on large-scale construction projects. They also design and plan activities to enhance social and professional connections, primarily for the civil engineering students.
