Campus-specific student organizations include all those listed above. In addition, a Professional Development Office (PDO) is responsible for the professional development of all engineering students. Not only does PDO develop and maintain relationships with premier industrial, academic, and government organizations, but also supervises the student chapters of professional engineering organizations. Facilitation of student organizational events and conferences, budget controlling and strategic planning of activities that support the professional development of students are also coordinated through the PDO. PDO also offers a full scope of services such as academic and career counseling, academic and professional development workshops, and scholarships workshops. In addition, there are field trips and/or guest speakers from industry each quarter offering leadership training and resume and interview workshops. PDO also provides retention and outreach activities for the College.
