LEARNING LEADERSHIP Rensselaer believes that all students should develop the capacity for leadership and so engineering students are required to take several courses within the on-campus Archer Center for Student Leadership Development. The professional development courses allow students to learn leadership and professional skills related to collaboration teamwork presentation and more as they work on engineering projects. This is an unusual and exceptional way to enhance your overall engineering education. Archer also offers a host of other leadership programs. I was one of 40 students chosen for the Professional Leadership Program which is taught by corporate executives to juniors and seniors said Viola Wu. I learned communication skills and team behaviors that really help prepare you for professional life. Stepping Up VIOLA WU 15 Viola Wu 15 a chemical engineering major was born in China but immigrated to the U.S. when she was 11 growing up in Queens New York. She fell in love with Rensselaer but wasnt sure she could manage the tuitionuntil she turned out to be one of four students in the country to win a 100000 Proton Energy Scholarship. Once at Rensselaer she sought out various leadership opportunities. Rensselaer is really unique in terms of our student government which is 100 percent student run said Wu. Its a great way to learn leadership. As treasurer of the student-run Career Fair she was also in the position to nab a plum internship working in the summer following her sophomore year as a process engineer with Procter Gamble. Perhaps her proudest leadership accomplishment has been serving as founder of Rensselaers nascent chapter of the Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers SASE. I saw that Rensselaer had a wide variety of professional organizations on campusfor Hispanic and black and women engineers but none for Asians. I found out about SASE through my work at Procter Gamble who are co-sponsors of it nationally and it just seemed like the right fit for this campus. Rensselaer is really unique in terms of our student government which is 100 percent student- run. Its a great way to learn leadership. Engineers Without Borders
