  • Student clubs support the many MANE-affiliated clubs such as Rensselaer Motorsport, Engineers for a Sustainable World, Robotics Club, ASME, AIAA, and ANS.
  • Course improvement helps keep MANE at the forefront in innovative coursewares and curricula that provide MANE students with the tools they need to solve the big challenges of our world.
  • Student recruiting attracts excellent and diverse students.
  • Student travel provides the opportunity for MANE students to attend and present at conferences around the world.
  • Student services ensure our students are provided the support they need to navigate Rensselaer, have a positive experience, and grow.
