Participating MCAA student chapters are from the following schools: California State Polytechnic University at Pomona; California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo; Colorado State University; Fairleigh Dickinson University; Ferris State University; Georgia Institute of Technology; Illinois State University; Iowa State University; Milwaukee School of Engineering; Northeastern University; Northern Kentucky University; Oregon State University; Purdue University; Southern Polytechnic State University; University of Louisiana at Monroe; University of Nebraska - Lincoln; University of Nebraska - Omaha; University of Washington; University of Wisconsin - Stout; and Washington State University.
