EXECUTIVES TEAM

The Executive branches have a very important task of giving the students professional development, but in a manner that will help them personally as well. We are the jacks-of-all-trades, giving the student what they need in order to achieve their goal of becoming the leader and professional they want to be. The executives are separated into three branches: Academic Outreach, Community, and Professional.

  • Academic Outreach

    • In the Outreach branch, we are responsible of reaching students outside of the university and giving them the chance to know what engineering is really about. We do this with a program known as FEHS (Forging Engineers in High School), and has helped many student make a firm decision that engineering is for them. We are also responsible for giving the students here on campus workshops for academic posters, among others; and even graduate info-sessions. This branch is here to help the student to grow personally, and further their education.

  • Community

    • In the Community branch, the main goal is to make this world a place in which helping others and taking care of our planet is part of our culture and daily life. We engage students in these actions in order for them to grow and develop their humanitarian side. This way more people will be willing to make a simple kind gesture and change this world for the better.  We make this possible by developing activities to help those most in need and protect the environment. We also provide support to other organizations such as UNICEF, Make A Wish, American Cancer Society and many more, whose goal is similar to ours; helping others.

  • Professional

    In the Professional branch, our main purpose is to give students the opportunity to better themselves professionally, with a focus on preparing students for interviews with companies, and our annual Meet and Greet. We help these students by giving them the tools through workshops to help them with their resumes and cover letters; we even have our own Career Preparation Day which helps the students prepare them for the job fair. We are here to help you land that interview, and get that internship. We’ve done it before, and we know we can help you achieve your goal.

  • Plant Tour Team: We are also in charge of contacting companies who offer us the chance to look into the job world and industry by offering us plant tours (tours of their manufacturing facilities). These tours take us through the day-to-day life of an engineer. It gives us a chance to see  the facility itself, the equipment used, the stages of a process, the products produced and    information on the companies themselves. They are a great opportunity to get to know a company and see in what area you can fit in.
