SWE Members Attend Regional Conference, Volunteer at FIRST Robotics

The Old Westbury chapter of Society of Engineers is keeping busy in the Long Island community.

Among their recent activities is their attendance of the SWE Regional E Conference in Blacksburg, VA at Virginia Tech from March 28-30. At the conference, SWE members networked with other chapters of the national organization, attended collegiate and professional development workshops, and met with industry professionals from across the mid-Atlantic region. A major component of the Region E conference was a career fair, which afforded NYIT SWE members the opportunity to meet with recruiters from prestigious companies and organizations such as NASA, PSEG, CISCO, and Boeing. In addition to these activities, attendees sat in on a professional meeting which featured distinguished speakers such as Terry McAuliffe, the Governor of Virginia. SWE members are looking forward to the SWE National Conference in Los Angeles, CA in October. 

Recent SWE activities don't stop there! Old Westbury members Rita Sobhy and Michelle Messenger volunteered with the professional chapter SWE-NY at the 2014 FIRST Robotics competition on April 6. This global competition, held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City featured 200 robotics teams from the tri-state area, Brazil, Canada, Turkey, and the UK. The teams of high school students competed for 3 days for the chance to move forward to the global competition. Alongside members of SWE-NY, Sobhy and Messenger helped children at the event to build wheel baloon cars, among other hands-on experiments. Of the event, Messenger says, "We had fun watching the robotics competition, and the event was inspiring to all who attended."
