Females Leading Aggies as Mentors in Engineering (F.L.A.M.E.) was started in January 1998. This program has grown steadily since then. One of the main goals of F.L.A.M.E. is to enrich students by providing mentorship. The mentors are female engineers working in industry who come from different backgrounds.
Students are usually assigned to groups of 2-3 members, and then matched with a mentor who works in a discipline that the students are interested in. Bi-monthly contact is maintained via e-mail through discussion topics, which range from advice on college to interview tips, and even the occasional joke! Two professional workshops are put together each semester for the chance to meet a few mentors and socialize with other F.L.A.M.E. members.
In past semesters, several students were offered internship and co-op opportunities as a result of their participation in F.L.A.M.E. This program is truly a reflection of networking and support in continuing education.

Howdy! Howdy! My name is Roshin Lal and I am a senior Computer Engineering major from Dallas, Texas. As a freshman, I had the opportunity to join SWE through SWElites in the Professional Development Committee, and served as the professional development co-chair and membership chair the last two years. In my free time, I love to play piano, listen to music, experiment in cooking and spend time with family and friends. I am honored to serve as your FLAME Chair for this coming year and hope to grow alongside every single one of you!
