Student Chapters

Student chapters are located around the world, providing an operating framework for all society activities at a university level. Student members attending the university annually elect officers. Every SPE chapter is sponsored by an SPE section.

Operate Your Student Chapter

The Chapter Operations Manual is your go-to source for information about how to conduct chapter activities and get involved in the variety of programs we offer at SPE.

Establish a Student Chapter

Student Chapters provide the opportunity for SPE student members to exchange technical information and network with peers and industry professionals. Any group of SPE student members in good standing at a university can request to form a new chapter if they meet the requirements.
