Student Membership (existing chapter)

Good news! ESW members of our affiliated student chapters can register for free through their chapter's annual dues. Registration is simple, fast, and helps us keep track of membership involvement.


Student Membership (at-large)

Students without an active chapter can register as a member-at-large for $15/year. If you'd like to start a new chapter, we are here to help! See below for more information.



Professional Mentorship

The ESW Mentor Program partners college students with professional engineers to support and guide the next generation of sustainability innovators.

Mentees receive practical advice on professional development and technical sustainability expertise to support their projects, while mentors practice leadership skills, reinforce their own subject knowledge and enjoy the satisfaction of helping aspiring engineers.
