The ONU Student Chapter of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers provides an outstanding opportunity for students in the Department of Technology. Each year numerous activities enable our students to compete in technology-oriented contests, experience industrial environments, meet professionals in the field, and to share in a fellowship of students with similar interests and aspirations outside of formal classrooms. The student officers also gain leadership responsibilities and experiences, and have the opportunity to gain formal leadership training within SME and through other ONU events. The following activities and opportunities are available though the work of our chapter.

  • Participation and planning for the annual Tour of American
  • Participation in the annual Robotics International/SME Student
    Robotic Technology and Engineering Challenge competition.
  • Extracurricular activities with other technology students at ONU and
    other schools.

  • Opportunity to attend plant tours and technical presentations at
    senior chapter meetings.
