How to Join

  • Fall Engineering Kick-Off Event – This event is usually held the 1st or 2nd Friday of each Fall semester. Engineering student organizations are an important part of this event and are ready to talk to you about their organization and sign you up on the spot!
    • Typically this event takes place the second Friday of the fall semester; however, due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be determined at a later date. The EOC will continue to monitor and follow CDC and TTU policies and recommendations.
