The topic of conversation does not matter, it should be focused on the process of the conversation. And, listen (intentionally)! Not just to words, but actions. Reflect on what others share. And, with this, it is ok to stretch outside your comfort zone.

    • Partners/Presenters: Lilian Casias, PhD Electrical engineering from UNM and Senior Engineer at Sandia National Laboratories
      • In 1996, Lilian’s parents moved to the United States from Mexico to seek a better future. They lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where Lilian attended elementary, middle and high school, while her father worked as an electrician and mother as a baker. From a young age, she would spend time with her father after school watching him work, she became fascinated by electrical systems. During high school, this interest blossomed when members of the Hispanic Engineering and Science Organization (HESO) at The University of New Mexico (UNM) spent time with her class to mentor students and encourage them to pursue careers in engineering. This experience had an enormous impact on her and led to her entrance to UNM and majoring in electrical engineering. Lilian graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering in 2008 while also actively participating in organizations such as Eta Kappa Nu (Electrical Engineering Honor Society), Tau Beta Pi (Engineering Honor Society), Phi Eta Sigma (National Honor Society), and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). Lilian was president of HESO (which is a joint SHPE and MAES organizations) for 2 years during her undergraduate studies and was the outreach coordinator for another 2 years. 

        Lilian graduated summa cum laude with a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) with a focus in optoelectronics in the spring of 2015. In graduate school she found her true calling and completed a Doctorate in Electrical Engineering in May of 2019 with a GPA of 3.9. In her graduate studies, she worked at UNM’s Center for High Technology Materials (CHTM), at the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) where she has been involved in the study of novel infrared sensor materials. Her research led to a dissertation topic on the Transport of Mid-Wavelength Infrared (MWIR) n-type and p-type InAs and InAs/InAsSb Type-II Strained Layered Superlattices (T2SLs). Due to its important application to MWIR imaging technology for defense applications, this topic is of interest to leading experts in this field at Sandia National Labs, U. S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Office of Naval Research (ONR), Air Force Research Labs (AFRL) and Army Research Office (ARO). Therefore, having the opportunity to use her research to make an impact in national security while polishing her leadership skills has been invaluable. Lilian is currently working as a senior engineer at Sandia National Laboratories where she is leading a few remote sensing projects and hopes to keep mentoring students through Engineering Student Services (ESS) and National Science Foundation (NSF).
    • More info: 
      • FLYER.
      • With an interactive presentation/conversation, Lilian will review the skills of how to become an effective engineering leader while attending college. She will share her leadership experiences at UNM and describe how you can develop a leadership skillset that can be applied to your engineering career.

      • Have THESE  Conversation Starter questions ready to help get the conversation flowing. 
      • How to Go From Small talk to Meaningful Conversation…in a comfortable and natural way. Follow your curiosity. Think of dialog as exponential, break past the barrier of “boxes” within 3 layers deep. Don’t bounce from topic to topic, but dive deeper within a single topic. The topic of conversation does not matter, it should be focused on the process of the conversation. And, listen (intentionally)! Not just to words, but actions. Reflect on what others share. And, with this, it is ok to stretch outside your comfort zone.

  • Inclined Planes and Curved Surfaces, Reflection Symmetry, & Write a Rule - In this workshop, students 1) focus on expanding and applying the knowledge learned in workshops 1-4 to shapes with inclined planes and curved surfaces. A full explanation of how orthographic and isometric views apply to such shapes is provided. Students then practice by building shapes with an inclined plane or curved surface and drawing the isometric views. Then they individually answer workbook problems. They also practice creating orthographic views for inclined planes and curved surfaces in an interactive Orthographic Telephone exercise. For additional explanation of these concepts, students also read and complete a software exercise. 2) explore the spatial visualization techniques of reflection and symmetry by building objects from cube blocks, defining a reflection plane, and drawing the object before and after a reflection. And, 3) learn a new spatial visualization test-taking technique called “write a rule” and apply it, along with their pre-requisite knowledge gained during the previous workshops/lessons in this series (not required, but beneficial), to practice answering test problems.
