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!
Twice per semester, students and mentors meet in Houston and College Station for networking luncheons. 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! My name is Nimrah Masrur and I am a Senior Industrial and Systems Engineering major from Cypress, Texas! But more importantly, I am the loudest and proudest member of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 2020! A-Whoop!
I am so excited to be the chair for the Females Leading Aggies as Mentors in Engineering (FLAME) program! I can’t wait to help you grow professionally with the help of the amazing female mentors! I have enjoyed all my experiences within SWE and am proud to be apart of such an awesome community. Outside of SWE, I enjoy watching movies, reading, and just hanging out with my friends and family. I am so excited for the upcoming year and I hope to see you there!
