This Regional Leadership Development Conference (RLDC) is held every year by the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) in order to increase the professional and leadership skills of engineering students from the different regions throughout the nation.
This year’s conference theme, “¡Adelante! – Leading through the Tides of Change”, directly correlates with the new shift of demand for Hispanic professionals in corporate America. Attending the conference will prepare you to become the catalysts of innovation and growth in this new demanding global economy.
Students SHPE chapters across Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas are coming to UCF to participate in corporate tours, leadership/professional development workshops, industry speakers, research symposium, ceremonial gala, and networking events.
As hosts, the SHPE UCF chapter is coordinating undergraduate, graduate, professional, and pre-college tracks during the conference. Several engineering companies in Central Florida and around the United States are either sponsors and/or also participating in the culminating career fair.
During the pre-college track on Saturday, middle school and high school students along with their parents will be participating in workshops and keynote speakers throughout the day. Middle and high school student will be doing hands-on workshops (hosted by Siemens) and spark their interest in STEM while the parents learn about financial aid tips, college transition, and much more.
