Fundraising Chair

Meet our Fundraising Chair, Aleeya Mitsch!

Aleeya joined the SWE-et committee her sophomore year, where she shadowed the Outreach Chair. The following year, she was the Outreach Chair where she organized and facilitated the Women Engineers at the Beach Day and the Engineering Girls at the Beach Day events. Currently, she is the Fundraising Chair and she is looking forward to raising money for SWE. She had a high school internship at Boeing between her junior and senior year of high school, where she found the fundamental frequencies of objects and learned how to design them on a computer program. Last summer, she had an internship with Applied Medical in the Thermoset Plant Team, where she designed an engineering toolkit for the engineers, requalified the Nikon machine, and investigated six Automated Inspection Machines to create workflow maps for future reference.

In her free time, Aleeya likes to read books, play chess, and hang out with her friends. She practices martial arts with her family and has a black belt in taekwondo.

Why did you pick your major?

"I picked mechanical engineering because I wanted to focus on hands-on projects and have the opportunity to explore a broad major. I am interested in robotics, prosthetics, and I love the creative aspect of brainstorming for new ideas, and I think mechanical engineering encompasses all of these passions. "

What is your favorite course?

"My favorite classes have been Fluid Mechanics and Calculus 3. Fluid Mechanics was very straightforward and I was able to pick it up better than my other engineering classes. Calc 3 was easier to understand than any other math class I've taken and I really enjoyed getting the right answer. "

Why are you in SWE?

"I'm in SWE because I enjoy being in a supportive environment that empowers women to thrive in a male-dominated field. I want to promote a safe space for future SWE members and all women in STEM in general. I have absolutely loved the friendships I've made and I love being able to help other students. "

Advice for women in STEM:

"Know that you should always be proud of who you are as a woman. Though you may feel isolated in your classes, you 100% deserve this degree as much as the next person. "
