ECE Sophomore Student Olivia Hadlaw Wins Prestigious IEEE PES Scholarship

October 19, 2016

Olivia Hadlaw, a second year Electrical and Computer Engineering student and member of the Albert Dorman Honors College, was awarded a scholarship by the IEEE Power and Energy Society Scholarship Plus Initiative.  Olivia was identified as a "high-achieving undergraduate student in an electrical engineering program." The goal of the initiative is to encourage undergraduate students to pursue careers in power and energy engineering, one of the pillars of modern infrastructure.

Olivia attributes her success to the opportunities that she has found at NJIT and the ECE Department.  In addition to majoring in Electrical Engineering, Olivia has found time to be involved in a number of clubs including,the IEEE Student Chapter, The Society of Women Engineers, and Engineers Without Borders.  She has traveled to Panama with Global Brigades to host a medical clinic for an under-resourced community in Las Lajas.  She also serves as an Honors Student Ambassador, a Math Tutor and a campus tour guide, and recently was a peer leader for New Student Orientation.  She has interned with ConEdison of Staten Island where she was able to learn about the power industry first hand.  Congratulations to Olivia!
