On Saturday night members of the Rowan IEEE branch went to the Union Building in Philadelphia for the IEEE Philadelphia section banquet dinner. It was a fantastic dinner and the event itself was a great opportunity for us to network with other branches and companies. This banquet dinner is an annual event in which the section recaps the events of the previous year.
Think Like a Girl, a Rowan startup, received the first “Student Project Award” for their work.
Torrie Griffiths received an honorable mention for being the chair of the IEEE affinity group WIE (Women in Engineering).
Jeffrey Eker had two mentions: one for winning the IEEE PES (Power & Energy Solutions) award and scholarship in 2015.
Both him and Charlie Grab received scholarships from the IEEE Philadelphia section.
