American Society for Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)
ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a global society advancing human well-being through sustainable technology for the built environment. The society and its members focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, refrigeration and sustainability within the industry. Through research, standards writing, publishing and continuing education, ASHRAE shapes tomorrow’s built environment today.

American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
ASME, founded as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, is a professional association that promotes the art, science, and practice of multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences around the globe via continuing education, training and professional development, codes and standards, research, conferences and publications, government relations, and other forms of outreach. ASME is thus an engineering society, a standards organization, a research and development organization, a lobbying organization, a provider of training and education, and a nonprofit organization. Founded as an engineering society focused on mechanical engineering in North America, ASME is today multidisciplinary and global. ASME's stated vision is to be the premier organization for promoting the art, science and practice of mechanical and multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences to the diverse communities throughout the world; and our mission is to promote and enhance the technical competency and professional well-being of our members, and through quality programs and activities in mechanical engineering, better enable practitioners to contribute to the well-being of humankind.

Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES)
The primary purpose of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) is to develop, encourage, inform and promote biomedical engineering for interested and current BME students by expanding their educational, professional and social development. The UCO BMES Club endeavors to provision information connected to UCO BME curriculum options, participation in UCO BME research, and prospects for academic and engineering employment. UCO BMES Club also promotes the exploration of social activities with related engineering majors, other engineering clubs, interested students of other departments, and both national and international societies clubs, and groups. UCO BMES seeks a Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) UCO Chapter with granted charter from the BMES.

Broncho-Powered Vehicle Team
The Broncho-Powered Vehicle Team will be a design team for ASME's Human-Powered Vehicle Challenge. ASME's Human-Powered Vehicle Challenge provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate the application of sound engineering design principles in the development of sustainable and practical transportation alternatives. In the HPVC, students work in teams to design and build efficient, highly engineered vehicles for everyday use—from commuting to work, to carrying goods to market.
