Students' Center

ECS has a number of student chapters which provide an opportunity to understand electrochemical and solid-state sciences, to have a venue for meeting fellow students, and to receive recognition for organized scholarly activities and community services. ECS offers current members of Student Chapters free annual Student Memberships to qualified full-time students. Eligible students must be full-time undergraduate or graduates registered for a degree in natural science or engineering and a participating member of their Student Chapter.

ECS Outstanding Student Chapter Award
Presented annually at the fall ECS bi-annual meeting, the Outstanding ECS Student Chapter Award recognizes one student chapter annually that has distinguished itself through active participation in the Electrochemical Society’s technical activities, outstanding community and outreach activities in science and engineering education, and a robust membership base.

The 2013 ECS Outstanding Student Chapter Award recipient was The University of Maryland Student Chapter. Led by faculty advisor Eric Wachsman and Chapter President Colin Gore, The University of Maryland Student Chapter formed in 2011 and quickly established itself as a role model. In 2012-13, The University of Maryland Student Chapter hosted lectures by prominent ECS members; coordinated a site visit at Teledyne Energy Systems; helped expose middle school students to STEM topics at the National Institutes of Standards and Technology Adventures in Science program; participated in the Science, Engineering & Technology Congressional Visits Day; conducted a poster contest; and not surprisingly, increased its membership.

The runners-up, Ohio University Student Chapter and University of Texas at Austin Student Chapter, were both recognized as Chapters of Excellence. For more information on applying for the 2014 Outstanding ECS Student Chapter Award, please see the award rules.
