These are the recommended steps to becoming a new member. However, new members are welcomed throughout the academic year. Feel free to stop by any meeting early and talk to our staff!

1. Informationals

Informationals are a great way to find out more about what our organization is all about.

2. Applications

CEL is a non-selective organization, but we do have an application to get to know our new members. CEL accepts applications throughout the year, but please submit your application before 11:59 PM on September 9th, so it can be processed before the New Engineering Member Orientation (NEMOs). 

  • Download and fill out this application

  • Email your completed application to

3. New Engineering Member Orientations

New Engineering Member Orientations (NEMOs) allow our staff members to get to know new members better and help us match new members to a committee within the organization. This fall, NEMOs will be the week of September 9th, and the location will be given as you sign up.

4. Begin Attending Meetings and Events

Our meetings are on Monday nights from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. in the Emerging Technologies Building (ETB) room 1020. The first meeting for new members is on September 2nd.

5. Pay Membership Dues

Membership costs $75. You can pay dues in cash or check at a meeting (see Garrett Shaw) or online by clicking here. Please note that there is a two dollar discount if you pay in cash or by check.
