Engineering students host Internship Seminar Series

The College of Engineering Tau Beta Pi, Malone Engineering Leadership Program, the Entering Student Program and the UTEP Career Center presents the Internships: Connections to Your Future Seminar on Friday, October 26, 2012 at 12:30pm in the Undergraduate Learning Center (UGLC) room 128.

This seminar consists of a series of student-driven initiatives that intent to emphasize the importance of pre-professional experiences among engineering students helping them to reach their educational and professional goals thru experiences beyond the classroom.

The objective of these seminars is to have an internship lecture series that consists of two internship presentations every week. Attending audience will select the best presenter. Among the seminar presenters are students that completed internships with NASA, British Petroleum, Exxon Mobil, Lockheed Martin, General Motors, AT&T and more.

Internship presenters will be Janet Gomez UTEP Civil Engineering student and Branden McNeely UTEP Mechanical Engineering student.

Janet completed her summer internship at ExxonMobil's Safety Security Health & Environment (SSH&E) Environmental, Regulatory & Socioeconomics Department. During her internship, she prepared a preliminary environmental management plan and led an environmental alternative analysis for an early stage industrial mega-project overseas.

Branden interned at BP and contributed towards offshore well start-up readiness and the writing of an execution manual to be used as the company standard for all well start-ups in the Gulf of Mexico. While holding the position of Vice President External for MAES/SHPE, Branden co-founded the very first MAES/SHPE Jr. Chapter in the El Paso Independent School District.
