Engineering and Technology Student Council (ETSC)


“Supporting all ET students by encouraging community, inspiring personal development, and representing student concerns.”

The Engineering and Technology Student Council is the governing body for students in the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI. ETSC's purpose is to serve as student advisors to the Dean, represent student concerns, distribute funding for student activities, and enhance the E&T experience at IUPUI. ETSC also coordinates community service, innovation, leadership, professional development, and social opportunities for Engineering and Technology students, participating in events such as National Engineer's Week and supporting opportunities such as the Student Innovation Fund.

ETSC meets once a month and is open to all Engineering and Technology students. We strongly encourage students to come learn what is going on in our school and have their voices heard on important school issues. Additionally, each student organization must have a student representative attend 75% of the meetings each semester to be eligible to receive funding from ETSC (for funding guidelines click here). food and refreshments are served at each meeting. For detailed meeting times and locations please consult our social media pages (Facebook , Twitter , and Instagram) or through The Den.
