PEPCO Info Session During E-Week (This Friday)

PEPCO, a local power and energy company, is anxious for GW’s engineering students to explore employment opportunities within its organization. In particular, PEPCO seeks engineering students in the fields of civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering.  Students with minors in sustainability should also plan to attend. To that end, PEPCO managers are hosting a luncheon at their offices this Friday, February 21, from 11:30 am  until 2 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to meet with, and to speak with, PEPCO’s hiring managers. This site visit also aligns well with Engineers Week!

Sustainable SEAS


Meet Connor

Meet Dor

Meet Dor Hirsh Bar Gai! He majors in Systems Engineering as well as Philosophy, and he was featured on sustainability.gwu.edu for choosing to minor in Sustainability.

Also, let me introduce you to Connor Slye, who is also featured on the Sustainability website, and his major is in Civil Engineering.

At the moment, Dor and Connor are the only SEAS students representing on the website, but with the growing interest in the minor especially among Civil Engineering students, we hope to see more SEAS faces popping up very, very soon.

Are you interested in a minor in Sustainability? Check out sustainability.gwu.edu or schedule an appointment with your professional advisors Myles and Hetal. Oh yeah, way to represent SEAS, Connor and Dor!
