Our Members Go Farther!

SHPE CSUN member's begin their professional career with skills and knowledge to succeed in their given field.
[Michael] often felt that I had more questions than answers and it was through SHPE that I learned that this was okay. My advise to future members is to strive to create your own path from lessons learned of those that have already started their journey; if you fail to obtain the internship, fellowship, or scholarship you wanted do not give up on yourself because there is an opportunity waiting for you - you just have to be willing to find it.
[Hector] is forever grateful to those who introduced him to the SHPE CSUN chapter back in 2007, which opened up the doors to an unthinkable future. A future where he overcame many obstacles to help others achieve their dreams while growing as a leader in the community through various leadership, outreach, and mentoring activities
Each and every day SHPE has helped me grow and they have accepted me into their familia. With their help and encouragement, I joined the executive board; I might have been rushing into everything, but I knew the SHPE familia was going to be there to support me. Because of SHPE, I not only have more friends, but I am now part of a familia. Joining SHPE was one of the best decisions I have made

Studies Electrical Engineering

The vision and goal I have for SHPE CSUN are the same my parents and grandparents had for themselves; which is to leave the next generation in a better position to be more successful than I currently am. This must be done by creating a familia of friends, leaders, and motivated members. Together we can, and will, shape the world in such a way that encourages responsibility, decisive action, and leaving no man or woman behind. Just as my folks challenged me to be a man of character, I too will challenge SHPE CSUN members.

Alejandro Martinez ²

Internal Vice President
Studies Computer Science

My goal this year is to ensure that SHPE CSUN continues to push forward innovation as well as have our club encourage our university to enrich our members’ educational experience further. As a larger group our message is allowed to transcend further than club meetings, creating successful external partnering’s.

Jose Olmedo

External Vice President
Studies Manufacturing Systems Engineering

My main goal for SHPE CSUN is to build quality and long lasting relations with likeminded individuals and organizations who will be of benefit to our mission. By doing this I believe that it will facilitate the development of all of our familia and it will also allow them to obtain the numerous opportunities that SHPE has to offer.

Erik Morales

Director of Finiance
Studies Electrical Engineering

SHPE CSUN is a community on campus where people of similar interests, goals, and experiences can come together to do good work for each other and the engineering community at CSUN. We are a strong community of dedicated students who strive to make the college experiences as rich and rewarding as possible.

Chris Nava

Director of Communications
Studies Computer Information Technology

My goal for SHPE CSUN is to create and develop a club that’s more than just a club: a community that one can build, develop, and shape themselves into the innovators of tomorrow; a community that thrives from its members’ kinship and their leaders; and a community that inspires itself and others to realize their uniqueness and importance in the technical workforce; but also a community that aims to change the world, with you.

Rodrigo Garcia

Chair Members

Eduardo Preciado

Chair of Education
Studies Computer Science, Math Minor

It is my dream for anyone to walk into a stress filled classroom, have a seat, lift their pencil, and take an exam knowing very well they will leave that day with another A under their belt.

Christian Sotelo

Social Chair
Studies Mechanical Engineering

My goal for SHPE this year is to bridge the connection between study time and social time. Many students don't really have the balance when it comes to having an outgoing social life apart from the immense study time required by their major. I hope the social events planned this year will give members a break from their study time and enable them to enjoy the full benefits of being in SHPE CSUN.

Vanessa Quintero
