If you remember people’s names, you’ll go far. That was one of three tips that Mia Fujii of Siemens shared with incoming students in the CSULB Beach Engineering Student Success Team (BESST) to help them connect with more people. And she said it’s not only important to remember people’s names, but also know what they like to be called and how to spell their names.
Two years ago, the CSULB College of Engineering celebrated the launch of its standalone degree program for the fast-growing field of Biomedical Engineering, and on Friday, the first cohort of graduates celebrated completion of the program.
Engineering student organizations gathered Monday to celebrate diversity in engineering with ethnic food, cultural displays, technical projects, engineering problems, and a panel of African-American, American Indian, Asian-American, and Latinx engineering students.
The event was organized by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), Mexican American Engineers and Scientists (MAES), National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), and Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE), with support from the Associated Engineering Student Body (AESB).
