The Oregon State University ACM Student Chapter is an officially recognized ACM chapter where OSU students and faculty can meet and share an interest in all things Computer Science. Our mission is to enhance learning through exchange of ideas between students and established professionals, faculty, and other students. We mainly focus on competitive programming, technical interview strategy, and sharing industry knowledge. Our flagship event is competing at the ACM International Collegiate Programming Competition (ICPC), one of the world's largest, oldest, and most prestigious programming competitions. We host weekly meetings on Wednesdays at 4pm-5pm, where we talk about technical interview and algorithm concepts, host industry representatives for professional development opportunities, and explore other interesting computer science concepts. You can learn more at our website (acm.oregonstate.edu), and from there, you can register for our club and join our Discord server!
ACM-W stands for Association for Computing Machinery - Womens Chapter. This club aims to supports women and other minorities in STEM careers, specifically in the Computer Science and IT field. ACM-W hosts different events throughout the year including: Internship opportunities, Professional skills workshops, Technical skills workshops, and Social Bonding events. These events help create a better environment for women and other minorities who are working and learning in the STEM field. These activities aim to foster a healthy supportive community for women studying CS at OSU. Many if not all of our events are hosted online or have an option to attend online.
OSU Amateur Radio Club (W7OSU) is dedicated to OSU community members who are interested in radio communication. Welcome to learning more about amateur radio and becoming licensed amateur radio operators!
OSU AIAA is a student chapter of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. We have around a half dozen interdisciplinary teams that work on drones, planes, jet engines, and rockets. We have teams ranging from a liquid engine rocket aiming to reach space, to a solar airplane that can fly without fuel for hours! Each team is made up primarily of engineering students taking their senior capstone class. The rest of the members are volunteers who help design, build, and test these projects alongside the capstone students. Many teams, but not all, are competition teams, meaning their flight vehicle needs to be completed on a timeline determined by the competition they are in. You can learn more about each of the teams here. Though the teams are primarily made up of engineers, the work is highly interdisciplinary and all majors are welcome. Non-technical help is especially needed in the fields of marketing, budgeting, graphic design, and outreach. Every team is constantly revising designs or needing help designing or testing components, which can be accomplished largely remotely. ECampus students can absolutely get involved and help by either working in the non-technical fields listed earlier or working on the engineering design or testing. No prior experience is needed! To get involved, feel free to reach out to Magnus L'Argent, the AIAA Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or join the club discord here. You can sign up to become a member on the OSU SLI database, which will automatically put you on the emailing list.
PMEC is a consortium of universities focused on the responsible advancement of marine energy, including wave, tidal, riverine, and offshore wind resources. Researchers from the Oregon State University, University of Washington, and University of Alaska Fairbanks work closely with marine energy technology developers, academic and National Laboratory researchers, coastal community members, ocean users, federal and state regulators, and other government officials to address key challenges in the sector and accelerate its emergence.
Out in STEM works to support young queer folx navigating the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. By providing mentorship, engaging directly with local schools, and forming relationships with queer faculty and students of Oregon State University, we strive to increase the visibility of LGBTQ+ individuals across STEM disciplines and create an affirming community that provides aid, empathy, and opportunity.
We at ATEN (the Adaptive Technology Engineering Network) have made it our mission to be an interchange between engineering and disability by providing practical and personal solutions to real-world problems encountered by the people of our community.
Whether you have a problem or want to be part of a solution, our club welcomes students from all colleges and majors. We value your input to help us approach problems from a more holistic perspective.
Our club is a combination of on campus and E campus students, and some of our clients work with us via Zoom to collaborate on new ideas and solutions.
Feel free to drop into our weekly hybrid meeting (Zoom participants are welcome and encouraged!) to talk to us about what projects we have currently going on or ask us any questions, or reach out to us at email@example.com
For combat robotics, unfortunately participation by ecampus people is limited to online design help and participation in our discord server. If possible, attending competitions would be a great way to help out, but we don't do online meetings often because we're a very small and hands-on club. It should be noted that we're soon merging in as a subteam of the larger robotics club, so things may change. We would love help with event planning and especially sponsorship though, so for someone interested in business that would be a fantastic opportunity to take on a leadership role and gain power over the direction of the club.

The Oregon State University Security Club (OSUSEC) is a community formed around a shared interest in cybersecurity, offering members hands-on experiences regardless of skill level. Join us in exploring cyber defense, hacking, digital forensics, intelligence, and much more!
OSUSEC regularly participates in Capture the Flag (CTF) and Cyber Defense Competitions. We also run a weekly, beginner-friendly CTF competition called the CTF League, led by experienced members of the club so you can hone your hacking skills.
All of our meetings and competitions are accessible to ECampus students in a synchronous format via Discord, so feel free to hop on and hack along with us! All you’ll need is a computer to get started. More information about our club and how to join can be found on our website at https://www.osusec.org/.

The Destiny 2 Club is a community of people at the university who play the video game Destiny 2. This club has a discord server link and doesn't do anything in person because it's a digitally focused club. We're happy to accept anyone who wants to be active in the destiny community and it's a great way to make friends. We occasionally host group game nights and we have a constantly running channel for people to look for others who want to play the same mode/activity and find quality teammates.
