Student Opportunities

Clubs, teams, and more chances to explore

Students at CSE are driven by a commitment to serve the common good through solutions that push the bounds of what is possible. Extracurricular programs available through the department, college, and university reinforce this commitment based on the belief that innovation is born out of exploration. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, check out the U-M Maize Pages for more club and event listings.
