  • musc_logoWhat does MUSC do?
    MUSC enables communication between undergraduate students and the faculty. The Council meets several times a year to discuss issues such as the way courses are taught, availability of courses, advising, and department support.

    Student representatives are elected by their colleagues during the Fall semester. The minutes from MUSC meetings are distributed to faculty, and the issues presented by the students are brought up for discussion and action at faculty meetings.

    The purpose of the Mechanical Engineering Student Council (MUSC) is to engage undergraduate mechanical engineering students in constructive forum so as to ensure that their academic experience is fulfilling and prepares them to enter the professional realm or continue further in academia.

    As a council composed of undergraduate students representing each graduating class, we aim to create an open channel of discussion for students to voice their concerns with regards to the curriculum, teaching methods, and career opportunities.

    We will work to represent the mechanical engineering undergraduate student body to foster cross-level engagement within the department.
