Noche De Ciencias: We had the honor of hosting a Noche de Ciencias event (Night of Science) at Northwestern High School on April 1st. We had a great turn-out of 30 students and parents attend. We had amazing speakers and representatives from SHPE-UMD, SHPE-DC, and UMD's recruitment department. We also had help from our volunteers from the Society of Women in Engineering(SWE), and Tau Beta Pie(TBP).
SHPE National Conference: Last year we had the pleasure of sending 8 of our students to the National SHPE conference this year in Detroit, MI. We had enormous help from the Dean of Engineering, and much financial support from UMD's departments of Engineering most notably Aerospace, Mechanical, and CHBE. We had two of our senior students receive offers from Accenture, Boeing, and Eaton directly from attending this conference.
Membership: We had a great turn-out at all of our events, from professonal development events to social events, academic to community service we are truely created by the students, for the students. We have expanded our membership count to 60+. We not only have attracted the attention of 40+ undergraduate students devoted to professionalism, academics and leadership development, but we have also welcomed 20+ graduate students interested in SHPE's core values and mission. Welcome!
Maryland Day 2015: We were one of many student groups and organizations who participated in this year's Maryland Day. We were able to connect with the alumni population as well as prospective students, teaching them about what it means to be a part of La Familia!
We bring companies to you. Guest speakers from companies like Microsoft, Northrop Gruman, BAH, and Gore will tell you what your resume should look like, what kinds of things you should say at an interview, how to dress at a career fair, and answer those tough questions you really want answered.
We help your grades. We aim to bring you experienced representatives who are behind study abroad, graduate school and internship opportunities. Learn what you have to do to set yourself up for academic success, from beginning to end.
