Student Clubs and Events
Varied extra-curricular programs are available to students majoring in agricultural and biosystems engineering. One professional student organization is the North Dakota Student Engineering Branch of the Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) - the society for engineering in agricultural, food and biological systems. The honorary societies are Alpha Epsilon, Tau Beta Pi, and Phi Kappa Phi. Members of the Student Engineering Branch of ASABE take an active part in the annual Agricultural Technology Exposition, interact with speakers, go on field trips, participate in departmental picnics, compete in the annual AEM Report national competition, compete in the international 1/4-scale tractor pull and design competition, and are involved in public service and social activities.
Becoming an active member in Professional/Honorary organizations has many benefits. These will be realized as you select the first postgraduate position and maintain competence and professional identity throughout your career. Individuals are urged to become active in student organizations.
