Mariela Resendez, president of the Society of Professional Hispanic Engineers (SHPE), and SHPE advisor Dr. Carrie Robinson sat down with José Cárdenas on PBS Eight’s Horizonte program to discuss the mission of SHPE and its various outreach activities.

Dr. Robinson outlined the history of ASU’s chapter of SHPE and Resendez shared her personal story of how the organization’s outreach impacted her own decision to become an engineer.

“I had no idea what engineering was,” Resendez explained. “I started getting involved in robotics, and I started learning about mechanisms, electrical systems, anything that was engineering related but no one ever told me was engineering until I got introduced into engineering.”
