Engineering and Technology Student Council (ETSC)


“Supporting all ET students by encouraging community, inspiring personal development, and representing student concerns.”

The Engineering and Technology Student Council (ETSC) is the governing body for students in the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI. ETSC purposes to serve as student advisors to the Dean, represent student concerns, distribute funding for student activities, and enhance the E&T experience at IUPUI. ETSC also coordinates community service, innovation, leadership, professional development, and social opportunities for Engineering and Technology students, participating in events such as National Engineer's Week and supporting opportunities such as the Student Innovation Fund.

ETSC meets once a month  from 10:30 AM EST to 11:30 AM EST and is open to all Engineering and Technology students. We strongly encourage students to come learn what is going on in our school and have their voices heard on important school issues. Additionally, each student organization must have a student representative attend 75% of the meetings each semester to be eligible to receive funding from ETSC (for funding guidelines click here). food and refreshments are served at each meeting. For detailed meeting times and locations please consult our social media pages (Facebook and Twitter) or through The Den.

President - Grant Wible


Year in school: Senior
Degree you are going for in college?: A Bachelors and Masters in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Mathematics.
Bio: I chose to be a part of ETSC three years ago because I believed it to be a way I could help make this great school even better. I hope to do this by building more of a community in our ET school and helping students succeed. Other than ETSC, I am also involved in the IUPUI Rowing (Crew) team, Campus Outreach and Tau Beta Pi Honors Society. Beyond this I enjoy just about anything outdoors; sports, camping, hiking, mountain biking, sailing etc. After graduating I hope to work in an Aerospace company. However, I do expect to return to school for an MBA after several years as this would allow me to pursue more of a leadership/management career path. ETSC has been an awesome opportunity for me to develop these leadership skills and has helped me realize that I have a passion for leading and helping people.
