ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, is an international scientific and educational organization dedicated to advancing the arts, sciences, and applications of information technology. With a world-wide membership ACM is a leading resource for computing professionals and students working in the various fields of Information Technology, and for interpreting the impact of information technology on society.
CE-CERT's mission is to contribute to improved environmental quality and energy efficiency by conducting a broad program of interdisciplinary basic and applied research and by providing educational opportunities for the next generation of engineers, scientists and policy-makers. Our role is to serve as an "honest broker," trusted worldwide by industry, government and the academic community, to improve the understanding of the environment and develop future environmental technologies.
The objective of CRIS is to develop intelligent systems that contribute to knowledge and advance engineering technology. The CRIS’s ultimate goal is the research and development of autonomous and semiautonomous systems with sensing capabilities, that are able to performs tasks that require and understanding of environment through knowledge, learning, reasoning and planning, and that are able to communicate and interact with other intelligent (biological and artificial) systems.
UCR COMNET is a center of excellence at UCR which conducts research and development in the field of Communications and Networks, including Wireless Communications, Optical Communications and Sensor Networks. The applications of this field range from Wireless Personal Devices, to the backbone Optical Fiber Networks, to the battlefield Mobile Ad Hoc Networks. Since 2001, UCR COMNET has received many millions of dollars from government agencies, such as National Science Foundation and Department of Defense, and industrial companies to conduct fundamental research, and has produced numerous Ph.D. graduates who are now employed across the United States of America.
Our mission as the local chapter is to provide engineers with technical, social, and professional development in the engineering field. We aim to be the leading engineering organization on campus, providing more opportunities for student improvement outside the classroom. We are committed in providing engineers with career enhancement, engineering social events, and growth in their respective professions.
Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is the national Electrical and Computer Engineering honor society. We are a student-run organization at University of California, Riverside, representing HKN, providing academic services to fellow graduate and undergraduates. Our mission is to provide a variety of service programs and leadership training, through which, our student members develop lifelong skills that earmark them for prominent positions in industry and academia.
"To increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers, who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community."

The mission of the Student Section is to develop programs to enable our members to improve their leadership, time management, communication and problem solving skills, encourage girls and women to study engineering, provide women with a sense of belonging in the College, the University, the community and in the field of engineering, demonstrate the value of diversity and teamwork, and promote the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life.
Tau Beta Pi is the only engineering honor society representing the entire engineering profession. It is the nation's second oldest honor society, founded at Lehigh University by Edwards H. Williams Jr. in 1885 "to recognize students of exemplary character and distinguished scholarship." There are now collegiate chapters at 237 US colleges and universities, active alumnus chapters in 16 regions across the United States and a total initiated membership of 523,215.
