Engineering Club


The College of DuPage Engineering Club is an elite club at College of DuPage for engineers, technicians, and design-project enthusiasts.

Our mission is to provide a diverse, flexible, open, and constructive environment for prospective engineers and technicians to work together on projects, gain experience, and promote engineering and technology.

We’re committed to upholding the values that the club was founded and expanded upon:

  • keeping an open, accepting, and non-judgmental environment.
  • working hard while having fun to meet the goals of our projects – be it making a quality product or promoting engineering to others.
  • providing the opportunity to learn skills, work both with others and on one’s own, and gain experience in what it’s like to have a career in an engineering or engineering technology.


How to Join

Come to one of our meetings on Wednesdays at 4 p.m. if you want to build robots and catapults, talk about thorium reactors and wind-powered backpacks, promote interest in technology, or just see if engineering is the right field for you!

We meet in Room 3606 of the Berg Instructional Center (BIC) at COD’s main campus in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
