Mechanical Engineering Graduate Council


The graduate council is a student body that represents the interests of the graduate student body at the department of mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor through a variety services, events, and social activities aimed at heightening the graduate student body.

ME DEI Student Committee

The ME DEI Student committee is a group of undergraduate and graduate students that work together to raise awareness, host events, and provide resources student-centered around diversity, equity, and inclusion for the mechanical engineering and the engineering community in general. We leverage ourselves as a resource and as a channel for communicating DEI-related information around campus to our community. Last but not least, part of our commitment to the ME community, we provide a completely anonymous survey where our students can express their concerns or ways they think we can improve DEI within the ME community.

Women and Gender Minorities in Mechanical Engineering (WaGMiME) is a community of individuals at the University of Michigan, which seeks to connect women and gender minorities within the field of mechanical engineering with professional opportunities and mentorship. It works to connect current students, staff, and faculty with the greater engineering community through networking with academics and industry professionals. It was founded to provide the sense of community necessary for women and gender minorities to become leaders on campus and in the field.

American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)


The University of Michigan chapter of ASME promotes and enhances the technical competency and professional well-being of its members, providing quality programs and activities in mechanical engineering to better enable mechanical engineers to contribute to the well-being of humankind.

Pi Tau Sigma (PTS)


Pi Tau Sigma is the National Mechanical Engineering Honor Society and is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. University of Michigan is represented through the Pi Rho chapter. The organization:

  • Fosters high ideals in the engineering profession

  • Stimulates and support departmental activities

  • Promotes professional welfare

  • Develops leadership and citizenship



BLUElab is a University of Michigan student organization composed of twelve project teams that are united through a sustainable, human centered design process. We believe that design is about people, and that the best designs are sustainable, taking into account all social, economic, and environmental impacts. For these reasons, our project teams are multidisciplinary and emphasize collaboration with local and international stakeholders to ensure that identified needs (typically in the areas of agriculture, education, energy, resource management, and water) are appropriately addressed. We offer students the opportunity to hone their interpersonal skills, engage in social responsibility, participate in an interactive design experience, and develop as servant leaders.
