We have some university-mandated requirements for those who wish to join:

  1. Be an actively enrolled undergraduate or graduate student at University of Central Florida.
  2. Fulfill membership dues of $10 per academic year—that’s from August to August.

We ask members to contribute $10 dollars annually while active in order to support and organize workshops and other events. Our members aren’t just restricted to the College of Engineering and Computer Science either – we’ve historically had Psychology, Mathematics, Criminal Justice, Physics, MBAs, and more!


Members get access to some very nice perks, some of which are pretty unique. With the help of membership dues and our sponsors, we are able to provide exclusive access to some cool resources and other benefits:

  • Eligibility to vote in annual executive election
  • Food and drinks at select events at no cost
  • Access to members-only workshops and training material
  • Access to members-only hardware and resources, when available
