Meet our Outreach Chair, Ravneet Pannu!
Ravneet Pannu is a 3rd-year Mechanical Engineering student who joined California State Long Beach in the Fall 2020. I also work on campus through the Learning Center as a Supplemental Instructor where I SI for Trigonometry and Calculus. Over the summer I interned at the Port of Los Angeles where I got to work in their Construction Division and worked on public improvement projects such as parks. When I am not working at school, I like to read, embroider, and do various DIY projects.
Why did you pick your major?
"I originally started as an Aerospace Engineering major, however, I switched to Mechanical Engineering because I like how Mechanical Engineering has many more options and different career paths available for me. I chose to engineer because I want to make the world a better place and I love problem-solving. "
What is your favorite course?
"My favorite course that I have taken so far is Solidworks because it was the first engineering course that I had ever taken so it was exciting to see what engineers do for the first time in a college setting. I loved the problem-solving aspect of the class and learning about a CAD program for the first time. "
Why are you in SWE?
"I joined SWE in my freshmen year which was completely online and wanted to find a community and get more involved on campus and in the College of Engineering. I wanted to be part of an engineering community, and SWE allowed me to be part of that community. "
Advice for women in STEM:
"My advice for women in STEM is to just keep going. There are going to be a lot of people telling you no, but you have to ignore it and just keep going."
