Student Chapters

ARMA is committed to building the technical and scientific knowledge base in rock mechanics and geomechanics and to ensuring wide acceptance among current and future researchers and practitioners. Strong student membership ensures continuity. Student chapters on campuses of affiliated educational institutions empower students to participate in activities that address issues, challenges, and opportunities related to ARMA’s mission.

ARMA has seen rapid growth in the number of chapters worldwide, and that number continues to expand. Chapters have engaged in a range of activities, including student competitions, webinars, student-mentor interaction, field trips, and professional development assistance. Some have created websites for members, sponsors, and the general public. In addition, an ARMA Student Council was created to provide liaison with the ARMA Board, to sponsor intra-chapter events, and to ensure effective communication and sharing of experience among member chapters.
