Join us in meeting officers of two important student groups that strengthen the engineering community here at Northeastern, the IEEE: Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, NU Student Chapter and the NU SHPE: Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers, NU Student Chapter.
Representatives from both student groups will participate in an open panel where they will discuss their organizations, how they became interested in engineering and their experiences at Northeastern. This is a discussion, not a lecture so questions are from the audience are encouraged.
IEEE at Northeastern University is the third largest student branch in the Boston Area. With an active membership of over 90 students and several IEEE technical societies, IEEE at Northeastern University strives to "promote the engineering process of creating, developing, integrating, sharing, and applying knowledge about electro and information technologies and sciences for the benefit of humanity and the profession". Those at IEEE at Northeastern University believe this can be accomplished by enabling students with access to both the latest technological tools, as well as access to industry leaders who have been and/or are the vanguard of their engineering fields.
The Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers, Northeastern University Chapter (NU SHPE) is a professional organization whose goal is to enable Latinos in the New England area to pursue, obtain and develop successful careers with top research and development, high-tech, and communications companies, as well as other science- and engineering-based organizations.
Members of NU SHPE are brought together by heritage, social responsibility and desire to improve the equality of all people through the use of science and technology. They value excellence in education, professional pursuits and leadership. NU SHPE obtains excellence through integrity, empowerment, achievement, diversity and continuous improvement.
