Mechanical Engineering Major Zoe Smith Named Lockheed Martin STEM Scholar

CSULB mechanical engineering major Zoe Smith is one of the 200 recipients of Lockheed Martin’s inaugural STEM Scholarship, which provides $10,000 per year in funding plus a chance for a Lockheed Martin internship.

Smith is in the 2019 Dean’s Leadership Institute and is the industry/alumni liaison for the CSULB chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). As soon as she heard about the scholarship from her advisor Tu Ngo, she decided she would apply.

“This money will help me financially, personally and academically,” said Smith, who hopes to graduate with as few loans as possible and has been working as treasurer of the Residence Hall Association. Continue reading “Mechanical Engineering Major Zoe Smith Named Lockheed Martin STEM Scholar”

Lamberson Scholarship Recipient is First-Generation College Student

Savanna Arguijo grew up in a construction industry family in California’s Central Valley. The summer after finishing high school, she helped her father on a condo remodel that involved demolition and reconstruction of the entire unit—and also changed her life.

That project made her want to follow in her father’s footsteps. Although she wouldn’t be the first family member to work in construction, she would go on to become the first in her family to attend college. Continue reading “Lamberson Scholarship Recipient is First-Generation College Student”

G2 Software Systems Interviews for Open Computer Science Positions

San Diego-based G2 Software Systems is often enlisted to fix broken systems or refresh ones that are out of date. The company’s sweet spot is with the defense industry’s large, complex, and sometimes antiquated, systems. G2 was hired to create software that sends alerts throughout all branches of the military, notifies the continent’s defense and aviation organizations to suspicious aircraft, and lets military personnel be trained simultaneously around the globe.

On Wednesday, a group from G2 visited the CSULB College of Engineering to interview graduating computer science seniors for possible jobs or internships. G2’s founder, Georgia Griffiths, is a CSULB alumni and member of the Dean’s Advisory Council.

“She’s a great supporter of scholarships for the College of Engineering,” said COE Development Director Nicole Forrest-Boggs, whose office organized the event. “We’re very happy to have them here.”

The G2 contingent included general manager Pete Keyes, mathematician Christopher Priebe, and office manager Jessica Rose, a CUSLB alumni.

Priebe, who manages a technology team at G2, said job prospects are bright for computer science majors. “This is a booming industry. It’s a seller’s market. There’s a lot of competition for engineers,” he said. Continue reading “G2 Software Systems Interviews for Open Computer Science Positions”
