Find a SEAS-Affiliated Student Organization
Whether you are a non-SEAS student looking for ways to access SEAS labs and event spaces more frequently, or a current SEAS student looking to find a group based on your concentration, the list below is meant to guide your search for the right match. For additional guidance finding a student organization to join please email
Please note that all SEAS-Affiliated Student Organizations are registered through Harvard College and follow their policies and procedures.
Groups that make members feel like a part of the SEAS community through social events, hosting conferences, mentorship programs, networking opportunities (alumni and jobs), and peer support networks.
These groups' primary focus is to work together to design and fabricate projects together. SEAS-affiliated student organizations can secure access and training to certain SEAS fabrication and design facilities to host project builds. These groups often participate in engineering design competitions.
