ISE Students Attend SHPE Conference


ISE students, Alejandro Nunez and Manuara Costa, recently returned after attending the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) national conference on November 2-6, the nation’s largest annual Hispanic STEM conference. The conference is an opportunity for engineering companies to recruit talented students from SHPE membership. Both students who attended were sponsored by the ISE department and are on the E-board of SHPE’s OSU chapter.

Alejandro and Manuara were interested in attending the event to network with companies and other student chapters and obtain a Co-Op/Internship. Alejandro was able to obtain a Co-Op with Delta Airlines through the conference this year and Manuara has attended the conferences since she was a freshman and all of her internships have come from it.

The SHPE mission is to change lives by empowering the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development.
