ALE/YLF Advancements of Latinos in Engineering / Young Latina Forum is one of our biggest community outreach events where we brought in over 200 high school students throughout Arizona and exposed them to stem-related workshops. The theme of this event was Zombie Apocalypse. The students were given the task to design and build a solar car fit for survival. The students were divided into groups of 6 and competed against other groups to create the most efficient car. Students were also given the opportunity to take a tour of our beautiful campus and explore the various opportunities the University of Arizona has to offer.
Technical Workshop Every semester we offer different technical workshops to our members. Members can learn different types of programming language or other software that could be useful in your engineering career. This year the technical workshop we offered was Solid Works which is a solid modeling computer-aided design software that runs on Microsoft Windows. This workshop was taught by one of our members, Rafael Haro. The main task of this workshop was to design a plane using Solid works. The members had a blast doing it and learned a lot from this workshop.
Guests from companies like Raytheon, IBM, and Intel 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 will answer those tough questions you really want answered. To top it off, SHPE sponsored conferences are open for your taking!
We 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 how you can prepare to how you can apply.
To complement the many opportunities of leadership within committees, outreach events, fundraisers, LeaderSHPE, but you can also get the chance to attend RLDC, and as a member of the executive Board, you can attend NILA. These conferences are an excellent way to learn what it takes to become the a strong leader in all the right aspects. The opportunities are endless - it's up to you to go get them and make them work for your advantage!
It can't go without saying that we are one of the largest most active Engineering clubs and campus and we know how to have fun, while still focusing on a strong academic performance and helping out in our community.
