Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE)

Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE) is the first and only international honor society for the computing sciences. UPE was founded at Texas A&M University in 1967. The Beta Chapter of Washington, DC was chartered at Howard University in 2004. Membership is by invitation only.

Computer Science Graduate Student Association (CSGSA)

The CS Graduate Student Association is a student run organization that pursues the interests of graduate students in the Computer Science Department. Elected members serve on committees that decide policy, curriculum, funding, research, computing resources, and work space allocations. Graduate Council also sponsors various events to promote the computer science graduate community.

Tau Beta Pi

District of Columbia Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta Pi Association. Tau Beta Pi is the national engineering honor society. Engineering students in the upper one-fifth of the senior class or upper eighth of the junior class are eligible. Election of scholastically qualified individuals is based on scholarship, character, service to the School, and promise of professional ability.

Society for Women Engineers

The Society of Women Engineers is a national non-profit, educational, service organization dedicated to making known the need for women engineers and encouraging young women to consider an engineering education. The Howard student section of SWE was chartered in l976. Its specific purposes include providing a support system for women engineers, increasing the understanding of engineering and enhancing professionalism among its members. Other objectives are: to serve as a center of information on women in engineering, to encourage women engineers to attain high levels of educational and professional achievement, to inform young women and the public of the qualifications of women engineers and the opportunities open to them.

Activities include technical writing workshops, round-table discussions on engineering developments, Region II conference, up-to-date job market analyses, distribution of the NSBE newsletter, and dissemination of graduate school information.

Undergraduate Research

The Undergraduate Research Experience is a rewarding and intense research program designed for junior and senior Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (Stem) majors. The primary goal of the undergraduate research experience is to develop talented underrepresented researchers who are highly skilled, knowledgeable and strong competitors for graduate-level study. HUSEM student researchers work alongside faculty mentors and graduate students conducting cutting-edge research

International Undergraduate Research

The Global Education and Awareness Research Undergraduate Program (GEAR-UP) is a research initiative whose purpose is to address the challenge of preparing engineering and science undergraduates for global engagement and leadership. GEAR-UP is designed to address the unique challenge of preparing globally engaged scientists and engineers by increasing the number of African-American STEM undergraduates who have international research experience.
