Mechanical Engineering Student Organizations


The UWB ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) club aims to provide students interested in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) and other thermodynamic discipline opportunities for internships, scholarships, and interaction with the professional industry. Events will include guest speakers, company tours, and industry networking events including regular meetings with professionals in the ASHRAE Puget Sound chapter.



It is the mission of the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) club at the University of Washington Bothell to provide enriching experiences and activities to engineering students, and those interested in the STEM fields. The experiences will help grow their professional skills while developing a strong sense of social entrepreneurship. The relationships formed through experiences with: guest speakers, professional development, technical projects, community engagement, student advocacy and a focus on diversity in the ME program will help our members gain valuable insight for their future careers.


Electric Motorsport at UWB

The Electric Motorsport at UWB team enables hands-on, job-mirroring experience centered in electrification and efficiency oriented design. Student team members collaboratively engineer, construct, and code an electric drivetrain into an unmodified kart chassis, working with advanced materials and components in small groups and with industry partners to achieve the greatest efficiency. Our team’s purpose is to compete in the annual eV Grand Prix efficiency competition each April in Indiana against over two dozen other college teams for the most efficient design solution.



UW MTS (Marine Technology Society) is a community of students, engineers, technologists, policy-makers, and student educators. Our mission is to:

  • Facilitate a broader understanding of the relevance of marine technology to wider global issues by enhancing the dissemination of marine technology information.
  • Promote and improve marine technology and related educational programs.
  • Advance the development of the tools and procedures required to explore, study and further the responsible and sustainable use of the oceans.



SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) is committed to creating educational and career opportunities to benefit UWB students. We plan events such as tours of local facilities, networking career fairs, and other professional development events.


TrickFire Robotics

TrickFire Robotics is a team of self-motivated university students, working to apply our skills outside the classroom. As the name implies, our goal lies in the design and development of complex robots used to compete in competitions. Part of our mission is to connect with our community through STEM outreach. Members are engaged in a hands-on team setting and can apply skills in mechanical, electrical, and software engineering, along with manufacturing, business, and marketing fields.
