Compete in games, earn prizes, & attend E-Ball

Dear VT Engineering Students,

Ryan Gniadek

My name is Ryan Gniadek, I am a Senior studying Computer Science, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to serve as SEC President this year. The SEC is hard at work serving our 10,000+ students and 80+ engineering student organizations through $300k+ in annual giving and 300+ corporate partners

Our activities are already well underway this year. From September 13th-16th, we welcomed 1,400+ representatives from 312 companies to the 43rd annual Engineering Expo. The university does not organize Expo. The event is coordinated by us, the SEC, a group of fourteen students, to benefit the entire student body. In addition to the numerous of interviews and job offers given to our 6,000+ student attendees, this year’s event brought in ~$600k in revenue for our organization.

The Student Engineers’ Council is entirely self-funded; every year, we depend on our corporate partners’ support to fund engineering organizations on campus, scholarships for students, and all of our other events, including Engineers’ Week and the Engineers’ Ball.

Make sure to check your email so you do not miss out on opportunities to get involved!

SEC President
