Organizations to Build an Engineering Identity

Dr. Renata Revelo talks about the importance of identity when educating and retaining engineers. Dr. Revelo is an electrical engineer, a professor, and a researcher in engineering education at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She’s studied Latina/Latino students who participated in the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) during their education, and she found that the organization helped them better see themselves as engineers, without separating themselves from their own communities. As a follow-up to the previous episode of the podcast, this episode explores Dr. Revelo’s work with Hispanic students at the college level, while applying the ideas to all students.
