ASEE at the University of Illinois
The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign student chapter of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) began operating in Fall 2009.
A group of engineering students began discussion concerning the inception of an ASEE student chapter at Illinois after a visit to Olin College in Needham, MA for the Summit on the Engineer of the Future 2.0. Work began in the spring semester of 2009, and the student chapter is now officially a Registered Student Organization at Illinois, and recognized by ASEE as the 18th student chapter nationally. Typical activities for the student chapter include a lunch seminar series and presentations by faculty on topics concerning engineering education. Other activities with a variety of like-minded programs on campus, such as iFoundry and the Campus Center for Teaching Excellence, are also planned.
