School Goes On
Hopefully career fair wasn’t too hard on you. Those exams you’ve got coming up on the other hand… won’t be so kind. Get back into school mode and get studying! Good luck on your first wave of exams. Remember, only 4 weeks until Spring Break!!
The deadline to apply for ASME awarded scholarships is March 1st. If you’re an ASME student member, and have at least a semester or two to go, check out this link and look into applying for a scholarship for next year! It looks like they take your application and put you into the running for the scholarship that best suits you. No needing to apply to a million scholarships to try and find the right one. Make sure you read all of their tips and directions so you don’t miss out. Good luck!
There will be some changes coming up to the banners and pictures used in the newsletter. Be advised that things might look a bit strange or may not be working properly as we go through this transition.
Texas A&M Regional Engineering Conference
TREC will be here the 4th and 5th of March. Once teams have been set up, and if you are one of the chosen, you should receive an email from the officers to let you know. As a participant, you will work with your team to solve the engineering problem presented to us the morning of the competition. It’s a great time to get to know some of the other ASME people and add a design project to your resume!
Women In Engineering
For all our lady engineers, on Thursday, March 3rd at 6:00 pm there will be an event at the UH Hilton in the Shamrock Room. If you want to meet and talk to professionals and see what some of our Alumni are up to out in the world you should go RSVP here by February 25th. If you follow that link you can also read a little bit more about what is going on with the event.
IEEE Chili Cook Off!
The spring semester’s Chili Cook off will be on Thursday, March 10th on the front lawn of Engineering Building 1. This year ASME and SAE are teaming up to submit the best chili to compete in the chili cook off. So we’re calling all cooks! Do you have a great Chili recipe to represent us at the cook off? If you don’t have a great recipe but still want to help out we’re also looking for assistants as well as cooking gear to borrow for that afternoon. Maybe you just want to eat some Chili! Go here and fill out this form for us by the end of the day on Wednesday February 17th!!
