Design Teams & Clubs

Students in the Engineering Science program have several co-curricular clubs and teams available to them. Prospective employers tend to prefer candidates who have engaged in leadership roles in clubs and teams.

MCC students have traveled to venues such as Honolulu, Vancouver, Portland, Chicago, Louisville, Austin, Tucson, and Pittsburgh competing in intercollegiate competitions.

If you’d like additional information about any of our clubs, please email Debbie Ake.

Engineering Leadership Council

The ELC is one of the premier clubs at MCC. The club consists mostly of engineering science students, although the club is open to all MCC students. Typical educational programs include guest speakers from industry and four-year engineering schools, along with trips to engineering companies and schools.

Social events such as bowling, movie nights, laser tag, faculty vs student volleyball, and club lunches and dinners are common.

Meetings are held Wednesdays at noon. Email Debbie Ake for additional information.

This club designs a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) and programs it to fly autonomously. The competition that the team competes in is SUAS (Student Unmanned Aerial Systems) at the Naval Air Station in Patuxent River, Maryland.

SUAS represents a very challenging competition against some of the best engineering schools in the country and the world. MCC has been in the mix every year that we have competed.

Meetings are held Fridays at noon and Saturdays for test flights and build sessions. Email Debbie Ake for additional information.
