Student Organizations

Eta Kappa Nu (HKN)

Eta Kappa Nu is a unique membership organization dedicated to encouraging and recognizing excellence in the electrical and computer engineering fields. Student members are selected on the basis of scholastic standing, character, and leadership. Through a variety of service programs and leadership training, student members develop lifelong skills that better prepare them for life post-graduation. Members participate in service programs and leadership training.


The mission of Graduate ECE (GREECE) is to provide a common platform for UT Graduate ECE students from all tracks and labs to interact with one another, the department, and industry, thereby enhancing their social, academic, and career interests. GREECE serves to foster a sense of community among graduate students within the ECE department.

IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)

The IEEE Student Branch is a student-run organization which promotes the interests of undergraduate and graduate electrical & computer engineering students on and off-campus. IEEE hosts service events, coordinate opportunities to meet with corporate representatives, and facilitate networking between fellow electrical and computer engineers.

IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS)

The IEEE Computer Society at UT includes student members focused on real world engineering projects. The society is dedicated to advancing the theory and application of computer and information-processing technology.

IEEE Graduate Student Chapter (IEEE-TEMS)

The IEEE Graduate Student Chapter at UT provides an unprecedented leadership and volunteering platform for IEEE/ECE graduate students as well as postdocs. We're an IEEE organization "of, by, and for" the UT ECE graduate and postdoc community and our aim is to organize technical, social and networking events while fostering strong collaborations with the industry, various IEEE technical societies, IEEE geographical entities such as CTS and Region 5, as well as other UT student organizations. Uniquely, we can leverage the benefits and resources afforded by IEEE Young Professionals (YP).

IEEE Power & Energy Society (IEEE-PES)

The UT IEEE Power & Energy Society is a student organization of engineers pursuing research, education, design, and development of electric power engineering. The society emphasizes renewable energy sources, but encompasses all aspects of power engineering: from the smallest scale power application, to power grid design problems, to power generation sources. While each member may have a specialty interest, the PES encourages a discourse on the future of power generation, economical operations, and environment-friendly alternatives.

IEEE Robotics & Automation Society (IEEE-RAS)

The IEEE Robotics & Automation Society inspires students to explore robotics and aims to make robotics more accessible by teaching skills to members. One of the largest organizations in engineering, RAS has members in mechanical, electrical, aerospace engineering and computer science helping students gain practical multi-disciplinary experience in the lab and demonstrate our abilities at various robotics competitions. The group also prioritizes community outreach, including to local K-12 schools in Austin.

Machine Learning Data Science (MLDS)

MLDS encourages students to pursue and share their interests in the field of data science and machine learning by fostering a community of students who learn by doing.

Women in Electrical and Computer Engineering (WECE)

Women in Electrical and Computer Engineering (WECE) is a student organization that fosters a community of undergraduate and graduate engineering women within the department through social, academic, and professional opportunities. Connecting women in the department helps our members develop closer ties to mentors from our alumni, corporate, and faculty networks.
