Undergraduate Student Association

HCDE SA officers outside Sieg
The Human Centered Design & Engineering Undergraduate Student Association (HCDE SA) is a registered student organization founded and operated by undergraduate HCDE students.

The HCDE SA was first established in 2009 with the mission of fostering a sense of community within the department by providing opportunities for socializing and professional networking.


The HCDE student association meeting time and place is TBD. Anyone is welcome to attend to learn about, plan, or suggest events and opportunities for HCDE undergraduate students.
