University of Pittsburgh, Beta Delta Chapter

The Beta Delta Chapter’s tradition, going back to May 14th, 1937, is to support ECE fields in Pittsburgh through networking, leading and team-working, developing as people and professionals, and serving as active community members. Our events often focus on service and volunteering, leadership and career development, soft skills, and community – in the past, we have volunteered at the Pittsburgh Regional Science and Engineering Fair, shared ECE demos at outreach events by Pitt’s Society of Women Engineers chapter, put on an interchapter RF fox hunt and Dave & Buster’s night alongside the Epsilon and Sigma chapters, and hosted a panel about the Professional Engineering license. In the University of Pittsburgh’s ECE Department, the Beta Delta Chapter also regularly collaborates with the IEEE and IEEE PES-PELS Clubs to gel our ECE community and have some fun at trivia nights and pizza socials!

Pittsburgh, PA

Pittsburgh sits at the junction of three rivers in Southwestern Pennsylvania: the Allegheny, the Monongahela, and the Ohio. Through the past three centuries, the city has played a role in exploration expeditions, railroads, industrialization, and – most notably – steel, earning it the nickname “The Steel City”. Nowadays, Pittsburgh is home to 90 unique neighborhoods and is a hub for education, technology, and medicine. The City of Bridges features sites like Pitt’s beloved Cathedral of Learning, PNC Park, the Andy Warhol Museum, Point State Park, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, Mount Washington and the incline, and more.

Serving as a chapter officer in HKN for two years has helped me to further develop my leadership, organization, marketing, and communication skills and has provided me with a better understanding of how student and professional/international organizations are structured and managed. Plus, it's wonderful to see my own and my peers' work and ideas in action!
