About the Webinar:
Do you want to make the most out of your SWE membership? Get involved with your local SWE section. This webinar will discuss many different aspects of graduate student involvement in SWE sections. Topics include development and growth of graduate groups within SWE sections, how to attract and best utilize graduate students’ skills, and how to connect to the greater SWE community. We will also cover the basic logistical information of being a graduate student in SWE. Lastly, there will be time for questions and sharing of best practices.
Presenter: Liz Dreyer
Liz Dreyer is the current Graduate Member Coordinator-Elect for SWE. She is a PhD Student at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI studying Electrical Engineering. Her research explores a novel class of optical phenomona called magneto-electric scattering. She seeks to determine and identify trends in magneto-electric scattering response in various materials for potential application in energy-conversion and integrated photonic devices. Liz graduated with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Michigan Tech in 2012. She has been actively involved in SWE since her freshman year in 2008 and most recently serves as the co-director of GradSWE at the University of Michigan. When not involved in academic activities, Liz enjoys spending time with her husband, playing board games, and exploring the State of Michigan.
