The name "E-Fed" (reads like K-Fed), short for Engineers Federation, is still being debated*, but its contribution is very real. The loosely aligned organization has accomplished great things in its inaugural year of 2007-8. (*Engineering Student Club Council is passionately preferred by some member organizations, though "E-Fed" name was voted on and approved)
Formed on May 24, 2007 by representatives of IEEE, ASME, ASCE, SEES, ACM, and later joined by SWE and EWB, the purpose of the federation is to pool together the talents and energy of individual clubs, and organize large events on campus to promote engineering club membership, and celebrate CS & Engineering at Seattle University. Particularly, E-Fed serves as the backbone for organizing campus events as part of the national Engineers Week (E-Week) celebration as well as organizing volunteers for off-campus events like the annual Engineers Fair.
With funding from Computer Science and all three Engineering Departments, E-Fed put together a Fall Engineers BBQ on October 16th, showcasing the engineering clubs and their activities. It featured drinks, food, games (with fabulous prizes). It was a fun time for all!
In support of PSEC Engineers Fair at the Seattle Museum of Flight, which aims to encourage K-12 kids students to explore engineering fields, Seattle University Engineering/CS had a booth (traditionally, a SU ASME booth) at the Engineers Fair promoting CS and all the Engineering programs. The student volunteers were drawn from ASME and E-Fed member organizations.
For E-Week, E-Fed organized the following events on campus on the Week of February 18-22, 2008.
"Order of Engineer Ceremony" was held on May 27th on the Quad, drawing sizeable student and professional participants. A parallel Year-End BBQ event was held an hour later, not only serving as the reception to the ceremony, but also as a year-end social and celebration of engineering club achievements. ASME's 2008 award winning vehicle Leonard G. Hawkenheimer and ASCE's 2008 award winning steel bridge were assembled and showcased on site.
Special thanks to E-Fed volunteers for 2007-8 (in alphabetical order): J. Alcantara '08 BSCE, G. Balagtas '08 BSEE, G. Bratzel '09 BSME, B. Hensley '09 BSME, M. Merin '08 BSEE, J. Nijjar '08 BSCS, R. Pinedo '08 BSEE, A. Robins '09 BSEE, C. Ryberg '09 BSEE, and C. Stoll '08 BSCE. We also thank funding support from CS and all three engineering departments.
