March Recap

SHPE SD GBM, March 25, 2022
We had a grand opportunity of having Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) present to our team.

We had a great turnout from members at large in this meeting.  Benjamin Ruvalcaba-Alonso & Efrain Vasques had a great session showcasing GTRI and the opportunities it offers for internships and entry level positions.  Great to learn more about staff level positions within GTRI in this sector!!!

Everyone who was able to join us... THANK YOU!!!  We hope you had a great time and look forward to your continued participation and collaboration in future events.

SHPE SD w/ Otay Ranch High SHPE Jr., March 11, 2022
We had a grand opportunity of collaborating and supporting Otay Ranch High SHPE Jr. along with SHPE SDSU in their "Noche De Ciencias".  This was the first event in person with the Otay Ranch High SHPE Jr. chapter after a TWO (2) year hiatus due to COVID.

SHPE SD Professional supported the event by bringing together a few professionals from various companies to be panelists and share their insights.

We secured GTRI , Senior Engineer (General Atomics-ASI), Collins Aerospace, Northrop Grumman, Booze Allen Hamilton

Students from Otay Ranch High had the opportunity to meet & greet university students and professionals alike.
