getting involved

        A great way to learn is to do.

AU students in the School of Science and Engineering find many ways to get involved both inside and outside the classroom. Honor societies provide opportunities to research and share knowledge with others both at AU and with students and professionals in their field. Student clubs provide a sense of community within each science area, both with fellow students and in mentorship with faculty members. Science-specific Study, Serve, Share (Tri-S) trips are also hosted throughout the year, providing professional experiences around the country and the globe, as well as time to engage with fellow students and staff.

Our students often find they have many opportunities for internships and summer research grants. Many companies actively seek after AU computer science and engineering students for summer internships. Additionally, we have a very high placement rate for our graduates in medical school, doctoral programs, business schools, and the job market, thanks in part to the excellent learning experiences students find in their extracurricular activities.

Tri-S is a unique international and cross-cultural program that integrates service and learning. Science-specific Study, Serve, Share (Tri-S) trips have been hosted in the past. Check out the Tri-S webpage for upcoming trips.

Discover how our students in engineering club worked together with student life to build a ninja warrior course! Once the course was built and it was ready for competition, engineering’s very own professor, Dr. Kyle Tarplee, completed the entire course alongside our students. This is what Real Life: Together looks like at AU.
