Graduate Student Organizations
Graduate students at Princeton Engineering can join any organization at Princeton University including those created by undergraduates. Several organizations cater specifically to engineering graduate students:
Graduate Engineering Council (GEC)
The Graduate Engineering Council serves as a liaison between the engineering school’s graduate student body and administration.
The council keeps graduate students informed about the decisions and forthcoming projects currently being discussed by the administration, while the representatives from each department bring the concerns of graduate students to the attention of the administration to work toward a solution. The GEC also provides interactive and informative programs for the graduate student body.
Graduate Women In Science and Engineering (GWISE)
Graduate Women in Science and Engineering is a community of female graduate students in the engineering school and of other people interested in issues of importance to women who study engineering and science.
GWISE organizes social events, scientific seminars, welcome and graduation receptions and student travel grants, and invites speakers who share their personal experiences in science and engineering.
Graduate Engineering Social Committee (GESC)
The Graduate Social Committee promotes social interactions between the graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, staff and faculty of Princeton Engineering.
The committee consists of students from all engineering disciplines who volunteer their time for sponsored events. The GSEC hosts monthly socials and breakfasts.
Wesley L. Harris *68 Scientific Society (WLHSS)
The Wesley L. Harris *68 Scientific Society aims to increase the number of under-represented minority researchers in engineering, mathematics, science and technology.
The society organizes lectures, networking events, seminars and workshops throughout the year to create a supportive interdisciplinary community of graduate students, researchers and undergraduates.
Engineers Without Borders
Established in fall 2004, Engineers Without Borders–Princeton University is a dynamic group of undergraduate and graduate students dedicated to applying their knowledge from the classroom and laboratory to address local and international challenges in a sustainable manner. Future engineers join with anthropology, economics, language, history, and Woodrow Wilson School concentrators to bring technologies and education to developing regions.
