Student Groups

UW-Madison consists of numerous student organizations related to transportation. Scroll down to find the group that fits you.


UW ASCE
Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) represents more than 137,500 members of the civil engineering profession worldwide, and is America's oldest national engineering society. UW-Madison is home to one of the nationally recognized student chapters, which supports many award-winning sub-groups.

UWiTS
The University of Wisconsin-Madison Transportation Society is a group of students who are from different disciplines and educational backgrounds, including civil engineering, logistics, industrial engineering and economics, but have a common interest in transportation. This diversity and vitality of the group will undeniably convey strength and vision to our research and studies on transportation systems.

Steel Bridge
The Steel Bridge Competition is an annual event that challenges engineering students to design and fabricate the most structurally and functionally efficient bridge. The competition began in 1991. Each year the rules are modified to keep the competition fresh and competitive.

Concrete Canoe
The Concrete Canoe Competition is an annual event that challenges engineering students to design and race a canoe that floats. The UW-Madison team is building on several years of success. They compete with other schools from the region and the world.

Construction Club
In 1997 the Construction Club was established to serve the needs of students in the Construction Engineering and Management Program. The primary goal of the Construction Club is to foster contacts between UW engineering students and the design and construction industry. The Construction Club is an umbrella organization for student chapters of AGC (Associated General Contractors), NECA (The National Electrical Contractors Association), and MCAA (The Mechanical Contractors Association of America).

Formula SAE
The Badger racing team is dedicated to the design, fabrication, marketing, and racing of a small formula-style racing vehicle. The group is composed of students from UW-Madison, ranging from such diverse fields as engineering, business, marketing, computer science, and journalism. Together, we work to build and race a formula SAE car.

Future Truck
The FutureTruck Program is a four-year competion sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and General Motors Corporation for 2000, 2001 with Ford Motor Company taking over corporate sponsorship for 2002 and 2003. The primary objective of each team is to modify the existing powertrain to increase the fuel ecomony (energy efficiency) as measured by the total greenhouse gas impact of the vehicle without compromising the safety, convenience, and performance consumers expect in this type of vehicle.

SAE Mini-Baja
Mini-Baja is a Badger racing team dedicated to the design, fabrication, marketing, and racing of an off-road racing vehcile. The group is composed of students from UW-Madison, ranging from such diverse fields as engineering, business, marketing, computer science, and journalism. Together, we work to build and race a Mini-Baja vehicle.

American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics
The nonprofit American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is the principal society and voice serving the aerospace profession. Its primary purpose is to advance the arts, sciences, and technology of aeronautics and astronautics and to foster and promote the professionalism of those engaged in these pursuits. AIAA is the U.S. representative on the International Astronautical Federation and the International Council on the Aeronautical Sciences.

Wisconsin Student Planning Association
Student group that is based in Urban and Regional Planning.
