Engineering and Technology Student Council (ETSC)
The Engineering and Technology Student Council (ETSC) is the governing body for students in the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI. ETSC purposes to serve as student advisors to the Dean, represent student concerns, distribute funding for student activities, and enhance the E&T experience at IUPUI. ETSC also coordinates community service, innovation, leadership, professional development, and social opportunities for Engineering and Technology students, participating in events such as National Engineer's Week and supporting opportunities such as the Student Innovation Fund.
ETSC meets once a month on Mondays from 12-1 and is open to all Engineering and Technology students. We strongly encourage students to come learn what is going on in our school and have their voices heard on important school issues. Additionally, each student organization must have a student representative attend 75% of the meetings each semester to be eligible to receive funding from ETSC (for funding guidelines click here). Pizza and refreshments are served at each meeting. For detailed meeting times and locations please consult our social media pages (Facebook and Twitter) or contact the secretary listed below.
Officers are elected once a year in the spring by majority vote. If you are interested in running please contact the secretary below. If you are interested in getting involved in another Engineering and Technology Student Organization click here for more information on opportunities.
President - John Flowers
5th year in BSMS in Mechanical Engineering with a Mathematics Minor.
Involved in ASME, Chemistry Club, Math Club, Energy Club and Engineering Abroad Club.
"Through ETSC I have really enjoyed meeting with both faculty and student leaders at IUPUI over the course of the year. It has been both encouraging and beneficial to me to learn the ins and outs of being the leader of a council."
Vice President - Ryan Comer
Junior in BSMS in Mechanical Engineering with a Mathematics Minor.
Involved in ASME and Undergraduate Student Advisory Board.
"I hope to use the leadership skills that I have obtained through leading teams of engineers in industry to provide high quality resources for ET students at IUPUI to better their education. I am dedicated to encouraging ET students to apply their coursework outside of the classroom so that they obtain the drive to pursue higher levels of academia and future employment with their degree in hope that they will strive to be life-long learners."
President Elect - David Kane
Junior in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mathematics.
Involved in Alpha Lambda Delta/Phi Eta Sigma and Honors College Peer Mentoring.
"This year, as part of ETSC, I hope to learn the inner working of the council and see how we can improve them next year. I also hope to get a good understanding of what the students want and see how we can better speak for the students. Being a part of ETSC has allowed me to meet some awesome people and make some great friends."
Treasurer - Karina Gonzalez
Junior in Mechanical Engineering with a Minor in Computer Science.
Involved in SWE, SHPE and Women in Engineering Network.
"I hope to connect students with opportunities and resources in order to enhance their educational career."
Secretary - Jonathon Bell
Senior in Energy Engineering with a Minor in Mathematics.
Involved in and previously president of Phi Kappa Psi.
"I like the opportunity that being an officer on ETSC gets me to help initiate events and policies that connect the engineers on this campus."
Undergraduate Senator - Ian McCaslin
Senior in Mechanical Engineering Technology.
Involved in Student Rights and Safety Committee for USG and is a Student Ambassador for
the School of Engineering and Technology.
"Through my position as an Undergraduate Senator on ETSC, I hope to be able to convey the views and interests of engineering and technology students to the ETSC and the rest of the campus. As a senator, I attend ETSC meetings as well as Undergraduate Student Government (USG) meetings where we discuss issues on our campus and come up with new legislation to ensure that fellow students can have the best university experience possible. I love being able to meet new people and ensure that students voices are heard and make an impact."
Undergraduate Senator - Bernard Lee
Sophomore in Mechanical Engineering.
"In ETSC I hope to make the school a little better when I leave than when I first started here.
I love how I have a hand in what goes on with the school of Engineering and Technology and can change what happens. As a senator, I attend ETSC meetings as well as Undergraduate Student Government (USG) meetings where we discuss issues on our campus and come up with new legislation to ensure that fellow students can have the best university experience possible."
Graduate Senator - Caleb Comoglio
5th year in BSMS in Biomedical Engineering (Neuroengineering).
Involved in Biomedical Engineering Graduate Society.
"As Graduate Senator, I attend both ETSC and GPSG meetings and act as a representative for both organizations. My main contribution is providing a direct line of communication between the two student organizations. Through this position, I am hoping to voice the concerns of the students to the ET faculty and/or administrators to improve the student experience."
Coordinator for Academic Success Initiatives - Hunter Cox
Working on Masters degree in BSMS in Biomedical Engineering with a Minor in Mathematics.
Involved in Hockey Club, Biomedical Engineering Graduate Society, International Biomedical
Engineering Society and Alumnus of Phi Kappa Psi, Indiana Theta Chapter.
"It is well known that engineering classes are some of the hardest and most unforgiving courses in college. To help students, I am seeking to engage students by introducing interaction with successful students in activities that promote meta-cognition, problem solving, and team learning."
Webmaster - Grant Wible
Sophomore in Mechanical Engineering with a Minor in Mathematics.
Involved in ASME, Campus Outreach and President of the Ecomarathon Club.
"As the webmaster, I am hoping to get the word out about ETSC and its events through our website, social media and fliers and by doing so help grow a sense of community for Engineering and Technology students. I have very much enjoyed being a part of ETSC as it has allowed me to impact the school and those around me as well as make some awesome friends."
