What We Do
Leadership Development Professional Development
At every meeting, SHPE de ASU hosts a guest speaker from companies such as APS, Intel, Honeywell, NASA, and Boeing. These speakers inform us about internship and job opportunities, but they also educate us about how to prepare for a career. You will learn how to make the perfect resume and how to make sure your first professional interview runs smoothly.
As a member of SHPE, you have the opportunity to gain valuable leadership skills from conferences such as RLDC and NILA. Being a leader, whether it is a position on the executive board or a position on a committee, is an important experience. We encourage all of our members to be leaders in some way, because any of the opportunities mentioned are perfect resume-builders.
Community Outreach Academic Development
Our organization believes in giving back to the community and influencing young students - from elementary, middle school, and high school - to pursue STEM careers. We host activities such as Noche de Ciencias, to show students how fun STEM can be. We volunteer at STEM-related events and educate parents of young students about college scholarships/opportunities.
Academics first! SHPE de ASU helps you succeed by reserving designated study areas just for its members. As engineers, we have all been through very similar classes, and by joining our study sessions you can be sure you will get some help if you get stuck on a calculus question. By joining SHPE, you will be surrounded by mentors and professionals who are well on their way. If you have any questions on how to achieve academic success, we will be there to answer!
Chapter Development The Five Pillars of SHPE
Leadership development, professional development, community outreach, academic development, and chapter development are called the Five Pillars of SHPE. As a SHPE organization, we proudly treasure these five pillars. Our members manifest these five pillars through everything they do within SHPE de ASU.
