The Affiliates Programs exist to facilitate a strong sense of community and connection among students in the College of Engineering and Information Technology (COEIT).


CWIT Affiliates are undergraduate students majoring in engineering and computing. CWIT Affiliates get access to workshops that focus on your professional and personal development, networking and mentorship opportunities, the opportunity to attend conferences and gain presentation experience, as well as community and connection with other COEIT students interested in CWIT’s mission and who share the same passions. For further information, please contact Morgan Lovell at
