A mechanical engineering professional organization that enable collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering disciplines.
We plan industrial/engineering related tours around the Soo and the state, attend a conference each year, compete in the NRC competition, and visit other universities for graduate school.

Faculty Advisor: Dr. Masoud Zarepoor

Engineering House (Engineering Society of Detroit)

The Engineering Living & Learning Community is comprised of the residents of the “Engineering House” Chippewa Hall that are members of Engineering Society of Detroit (ESD). As ESD members, students have the opportunity to network with industrial companies at pre-career fair events, attend behind-the-scenes tours of the Detroit Auto Show and Mackinac Bridge, and enjoy many fun house activities. A 360 degree tour is available.

Faculty Advisors:

Joseph Moening, Ph.D.
