Current HCDE students have participated in the following Registered Student Organizations:

Alpha Theta Delta
A professional network empowering members of all backgrounds with a solid foundation in interdisciplinary design.

Design for America - University of Washington
We believe that any student, regardless of their major, can practice design thinking. The mission of Design for America - University of Washington is to create positive change in the local community, with a focus on hands-on projects that allow members to practice design and solve real world problems.

DUBvelopers is a web development and web design RSO at the University of Washington Seattle. We provide a technical foundation for students through our web development and design curriculum, in order to develop their skills and eventually work on projects for underserved communities and organizations throughout Seattle. DUBvelopers aims to make web development/design and websites accessible by providing access to beginner friendly workshops in web development coding and design and creating pro bono projects for the community.

We at DubsTech aim to help students grow their tech skills. We organize a variety of open-to-all workshops, competitions, talks, and more. We've had guest speakers from various tech companies such as Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, and more. We’re also known for holding UW’s first data science hackathon, the Datathon, and the only UX competition on campus, the Protothon! Here, participants test their rapid prototyping and design thinking skills in two industry inspired, time-sensitive design challenges, and help design for the future. Irrespective of your major, background, or skill level, everyone is welcome!

Girls Who Code College Loops - UW Chapter
We are a college campus organization where women (and those who identify as female) who have attended Girls Who Code Club/Immersion Programs and people with an interest in or passion for computer science and tech related fields can get together to learn, support each other, and have fun. Although being affiliated with Girls Who Code, we do not restrict membership based on gender, and everyone is welcome to join

Human Centered Design and Engineering Student Association
Our mission is to foster community within the department of Human Centered Design and Engineering by hosting events and activities that provide opportunities for socializing and professional networking.

Our mission is to foster an inclusive, sustainable, and multidisciplinary community supporting accessible design and play technology. This includes adapting toys for users with diverse needs, designing solutions to accessibility challenges, and engaging with the community.

Husky Tech
The purpose of this organization to accelerate the career of students passionate in any tech field. Events and informal or formal information sessions should be held to serve the purpose of this organization.

National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) University of Washington
Mission Statement: To increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community. 

NeuroTechnology, Engineering & Computation
NeuroTEC’s mission is to raise awareness about the innovative neural engineering and computational neuroscience research being pursued at the University of Washington’s (UW) Center for Neurotechnology (CNT), NeuroHUB and Computational Neuroscience Center (CNC). We also coordinate with partner institutions outside the UW to bring in speakers, industry events, and research opportunities. This RSO is focused on engaging UW students in the fields of neurotechnology and computational neuroscience through outreach events, an invited-speaker seminar series, an annual Hackathon, graduate research presentations, and undergraduate mentorship. We have been previously operating under the NSF funding of the Center for Neurotechnology (CNT) and are excited to transition to a broader RSO status with new center student support from the NeuroHub and Computational Neuroscience Center (CNC).

Phi Sigma Rho Engineering Sorority
We are a sisterhood of women engineers at the University of Washington. Our goal is to provide women in engineering with a supportive, collaborative, and wide network of social stability. We are aiming to become the foremost social sorority for engineering women at universities around the Nation. Through our community service, social events, and collaborative work with other societies such as Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), we are helping to give women in engineering the aptitude to overcome moral challenges and responsibilities for the individual and the chapter.

Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE)
Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE)

Society of Women Engineers at UW
The SWE at UW section encourages students to pursue careers within the field of engineering and to expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life. Our mission is to stimulate women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, demonstrate the value of diversity.
