Computer Science & Engineering Student Societies

Enhance your learning experience at BYU-Idaho by joining a Computer Science or Engineering academic society. Discover leadership opportunities and a network of students who share your professional and academic interests.
The Computing Society prepares members for future careers, helps build their personal portfolio, fosters social environments for networking, and encourages team building. 

The Computing Society is the main society for Computer Science and Engineering and has many teams and societies, including Cloud Solutions, Cybersecurity, Game Development, Drone, Coding Interview, Web Design & Development, Operating System Development, Formula Hybrid & Electric, IEEE, SWE, and Data Science / A.I.

Enjoy socializing, technology, and food each week on Wednesday at 5:00 PM in STC 398.
Founded in 1950, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), is a non-profit educational and service organization that seeks to promote engineering as a fulfilling career aspiration for women. 

SWE empowers women to succeed and receive recognition for their life-changing contributions and achievements as engineers.

Contact Kristi Hansen for more information on SWE.
Fine tune your skills in the art of electronic communications. The Amateur Radio Student Society builds connections to help its members to fulfill future roles and duties throughout their lives and within the Church.
IEEE is the world's largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation for the benefit of humanity. 

IEEE and its members inspire a global community through cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.

Students who join IEEE can network with industry professionals, collaborate with peers, gain access to the latest research, and benefit from member discounts.
The Society for Artificial Intelligence (SAI) introduces students to what A.I. and its impact on our world. Regardless of your experience with computers or programming, all BYU-I students are welcome to come and collaborate with us and become more familiar with this exciting field.

We have worked on several A.I. projects as a Society, including game development, robotics, natural language processing, and machine learning.
Tau Beta Pi is a national honor society for engineering majors. Tau Beta Pi installed the Idaho Delta chapter here at BYU-Idaho in March 2017, but the chapter operated previously and independently for over three years as Tau Beta Delta. Now that Tau Beta Delta is an official chapter of the national honor society, student members are eligible for various scholarship opportunities. Admittance to the society is by invitation only, but students may contact the President to understand the academic and personal standards necessary to be invited.
