Student Clubs

This Palm Bay Campus-based club serves students pursuing degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM).

Visit the Student Club page for information on this club and for additional opportunities listed by Campus.

Scientific Research & Mentoring

EFSC faculty members mentor students in many areas of research through the Office of Undergraduate Research. In February 2018, EFSC’s Melbourne campus hosted the Florida Undergraduate Research Conference (FURC), where students from EFSC and other Florida colleges and universities presented their original research. Students have the opportunity to present and attend FURC as it's hosted at other Florida institutions.

The EFSC chapter of Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) sponsors a monthly lecture series during the Fall and Spring Terms, where students can learn about career paths from local experts in the industry. It also assists students in locating professional mentors for additional individualized guidance.


Each EFSC campus has an Academic Success Center where students can access the assistance of a tutor.


Science students may gain valuable practical experience by participating in community service activities through EFSC’s Center for Service-Learning & Civic Engagement.

Honors Program

The EFSC Honors Program supports academically gifted students, providing an opportunity to participate in scholarly inquiry, creative interaction and intellectual stimulation.

Career Planning

Each EFSC campus has a Career Planning & Development Center, where students can explore career fields, attend job fairs and participate a variety of career development workshops.

EFSC also provides access to Pathevo STEM Education & Career Planning, a unique tool specifically designed to aid students pursuing careers in the sciences.
