Reflections of an Engineer on the Past, Present, and Future Webinar
Women in Engineering (WIE) student organization and HKN honor society co-organized a webinar from 11:00am to 12:00pm on Nov. 20, 2020. The webinar featured a presentation titled "Reflections of an Engineer on the Past, Present, and Future" delivered by Mr. Steve Galecki, the current IEEE Chair, Cleveland chapter. There were 41 attendees including the students from EECE, CVE, and MCE Departments and EECS faculty at CSU. The presentation was followed by Q and A session when students asked many questions about job hunting, PE exam, the balance of challenges and skills and so on. Steve answered all the questions and shared his experience and observations. This was the first webinar organized by student officers since the outbreak of COVID-19. Particularly Grace Quaitance (president of WIE), Diana Valle (treasurer of WIE), Anusree Mandali (VP of WIE) and Aaron Teeter (President of HKN) successfully promoted the event, and secured SGA fund to sponsor the event. The webinar would not be successful without their time and efforts.
