SWE Ends Semester With Outreach Event and Annual Banquet

SWE volunteers helped students engage in various STEM-related activities at the "Wow! That's Engineering!" outreach event.

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) recently hosted a “Wow! That’s Engineering!” outreach event titled “Innovation through Imagination.”  The event, funded by a grant from ExxonMobil, hosted 55 students from the seventh grade class of the Newark Early College High School (NECHS) and six of their chaperones.  SWE volunteers helped students engage in various STEM-related activities aimed to promote areas such as computer, aeronautical, electrical, mechanical, and biomedical engineering.

SWE also recently held their Annual Networking Night & Awards Reception, which was attended by around 100 participants including faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students from across the campus, as well as the society’s industry contacts.  The event was supported by the Newark College of Engineering (NCE) and the Murray Center for Women in Technology.  Lisa Kardos, undergraduate advisor in the department of chemical engineering, was the invited speaker for the night.

At the event, SWE activities and achievements for the 2012-13 academic year were highlighted and the new student e-board for 2013-14 was also introduced.  Congratulations to:  Masroor Khan (undergrad SWE president), Smruti Ragunath (graduate SWE president), Yasmine Aly (graduate SWE vice-president), Amisha Desai (undergrad SWE vice-president), Aditi Surma (undergraduate treasurer), Kimberly Lam (undergrad secretary), Keertana Karynakaran (graduate secretary), Nisma Aly (graduate webmaster), Adaoha Uzoho (undergrad webmaster), Vini Mehta (undergrad public relations director), and Noor Aly (undergrad outreach coordinator).
