MEM Student Council

The Master of Engineering Management Council (MEMC) is a student group that works closely with both Thayer and MEM leadership to enact initiatives, plan events, and facilitate program development. The MEMC strives to leverage student diversity to enhance the collaborative learning environment of the program.

What We Do

The MEMC helps address the professional, academic, and social needs of students and alumni by:

  • supporting MEM career objectives through networking events, including professional development workshops and high-profile guest speakers.
  • facilitating communication between MEM students and faculty regarding curriculum issues and program improvements.
  • organizing social events that promote community and bring MEM students together outside of academic settings.
  • ensuring all MEM students feel welcome, valued, and have the capacity to thrive at Dartmouth.

Prospective students are encouraged to contact MEMC leadership to learn more about the program from a current student's perspective. You are welcome to ask us anything, from academics to student life, or join our Facebook group!
