Highline College Mentor Night (April 21, 2015) Event Summary

May 4, 2015

The Highline College Mentor Night was a huge success.  There were about 75 students and 13 Mentors.  Rich Bankhead (with the Highline College’s Engineering Dept.) spoke at the beginning of the event.  Steve Snelling (from PSEC) spoke briefly about some of the information on the PSEC website about the member Engineering Societies (with direct links to their local & national engineering websites).

There were 4-5 very busy sessions (timed at about 20 minutes each, announced when to rotate), with almost all of the tables filled with students.  All of the Mentors were very busy talking to students at each of their tables.  Most Mentors had good table display items to talk to the students about their engineering work.

Many of the students were Freshmen; a few of the students were Sophomores.  The students were interested in several types of Engineering (Mechanical, Electrical, Aerospace, Civil, Chemical, Materials, Structural, and Industrial).

They gave the students, a half page list of good questions to ask the Mentors, but most students didn’t need to refer to the questions sheet – since they had plenty of questions on their own.

There was plenty of good pizza, and lots of iced tea, lemonade, & ice water.  Some Mentors stayed talking to smaller groups of students, until almost 8:30 pm.

PSEC Member Societies Invited to “Dinner with Industry” on April 9th 2015

March 12, 2015

This event is not a PSEC Mentor Night as typically coordinated by PSEC, however all PSEC Member Societies are encouraged to support “Dinner with Industry” hosted at Everett Community College (EvCC) by volunteering to attend. Below is the invitation by the the EvCC Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Student Club which is under the Society of Women Engineers Pacific Northwest section (SWE-PNW):

My name is Dilraj Bal, I am the vice-president of Society of Women Engineers (SWE) at Everett Community College.  EvCC SWE club is a small collegiate interest group under the SWE-PNW section and our faculty adviser is Kristine Washburn.

We are organizing a “Dinner with Industry” on April 9th from 6-8 pm and we would love it if you could attend!  Our goal is to have students learn, ask questions and get excited about engineering.  I want to stress that we are looking for all engineers, both men and women, to attend and share their experience with our students. In return, SWE/EvCC will pay for your dinner and you get the opportunity to interact with a group of promising future engineers. You are encouraged to share this invitation with your colleagues in the engineering profession.

You can direct any questions as well as register for the event by contacting me, Dilraj Bal, at dsbal@students.everettcc.edu

Once you have registered for the event I will send you a reminder email when the date gets closer.  Enclosed in that email will be directions to the school, a map of the campus, the building the event will be taking place in, and where to park.  I will also attach a print out parking pass for you to put on your dashboard when you arrive at the college.

Thank you for your time and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
