Faculty-Alumna Chat: Ellen Aruda
Tuesday, March 31st, 2015 - 5:15-6:15PM - Room 5-134

MEGAWomen is excited to host Professor Ellen Arruda from University of Michigan for a faculty-alumna chat. Prof. Arruda did her PhD here in Mechanical Engineering in 1992 under our former department chair Professor Mary Boyce studying the strain hardening of amorphous polymers.

We've invited her to come share her experiences while at MIT and offer any ideas and advice she has about life after graduate school. All graduate students in the department are welcome!

We'll have dinner available. Please bring any questions you have, or email the officers if you'd like us to ask them.


Thank you to all the MEGAMentors!

Special thank you to all the MEGAWomen who have volunteered their time to MEGAmentors in our first ever MEGAWomen mentoring program! We are very excited that we have 36 undergraduate mentees paired with 12 amazing MEGAWomen and we are looking forward to a great semester with them. Our Mentoring Program KickOff will be Monday October 27th. We hope to see everyone there!
