U.S. Military Academy, FIU Intern Profile, & Board of Trustees Election (Nov. 2018)

The New York Upsilon Chapter of Tau Beta Pi at the United States Military Academy held its fall initiation on November 28. The chapter welcomed 20 new members! See more images, like the one below, from their initiation and other TBP District 2 collegiate chapters.


Melody A. Gonzalez, FL Q 2018, was recently profiled by Florida International University (FIU News) for her internship with Black and Veatch. Gonzalez is majoring in civil engineering at FIU and according to the article, she supported the South Florida team in water and wastewater related projects.

Her advice from her internship experience: “Networking is crucial. Get involved in organizations related to our field of study. Those professional relationships can give you the opportunity to get your foot in the door for an interview. Don’t give up. It takes time to build your network, but it will eventually pay off,” said Gonzalez.


Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) has announced the election of two new members to its board of trustees. One of the new members is Darryll J. Pines, Ph.D. (MD B ’86), who serves as University of Maryland dean of the school of engineering.

UL is a 125-year global organization “that fosters safe living and working conditions for people everywhere through the application of science to solve safety, security and sustainability challenges.” Dr. Pines previously served as program manager for the tactical technology office and defense sciences office at DARPA.
