Three Industrial and Manufacturing students were among the five Outstanding Women in Engineering and Technology winners selected for 2010 by the Cal Poly Society of Women Engineers (SWE).
In cooperation with Hewlett-Packard, SWE selected the recipients of the 2010 Outstanding Women in Engineering and Technology Award based on four criteria: faculty recommendations, demonstrated leadership, related work experience and grade point average. Each of the winners is actively engaged in several extracurricular activities. The IME winners included:
Allison Holmgren, an industrial engineering graduate student from Pleasanton, CA, is a five-year member of the Institute of Industrial Engineers, and participated in PolyHouse 2008, a student managed home renovation project for a deserving family. Holmgren is also a Cal Poly Dean's List recipient (for a GPA of 3.5 or above) for 10 quarters, a member of engineering honor society Tau Beta Pi, and she served as an air warfare systems intern at Raytheon Missile Systems in Tucson, AZ, where she also earned certification as a Certified Raytheon Six Sigma Specialist.
Jessica Paz, an industrial engineering senior from San Luis Obispo, CA, served as president of Cal Poly's Engineering Student Council and worked on the interior design aspects of the PolyHouse 2009 program. Jessica is a National Science Foundation scholarship winner, a member of Tau Beta Pi and Alpha Pi Mu honor societies, and was involved with the Spanish Medical Study Abroad Program in Buenos Aires.
Cameron Schlemer, a senior industrial engineering student from San Luis Obispo, CA, has been on the Industrial Engineering Student Fee Committee since 2006 and is an officer in the Institute of Industrial Engineers. Cameron was also a project manager on the PolyHouse 2008 project, and has been a Dean's List recipient for four quarters. She interned with Boeing in Washington. She is minoring in Psychology.
The other two Outstanding Women in Engineering and Technology winners for 2010 were Roshani Patel, a civil engineering senior from Bakersfield, CA, and Alyssa Daw, a software engineer senior from Redmond, WA.
