The National Association of Engineering Student Councils (NAESC) has elected University of Iowa student Katie Santangelo as a member of the 2018-2019 Midwest Regional Leadership Team.

Santangelo is a senior studying biomedical engineering and is from Homer Glen, IL. Next academic year, she will be serving as the vice president of Iowa’s Engineering Student Council,  and outreach coordinator at Iowa’s Student Legal Services along with working at the UI College of Law.

NAESC is the overarching organization for over fifty participating college councils from across the nation. The entirely student-led nonprofit serves to increase collaboration and communication between top engineering student leaders, and to improve individual councils.

Through NAESC, students are given the opportunity to establish their professional accountability by attending regular meetings, visiting prestigious universities across the country for regional and national conferences, and by leading projects with other students across the nation. NAESC provides networking with student leaders, corporate sponsors, and active NAESC alumni, and has connections with similar international organizations such as the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students, the Board of European Students of Technology, and the European Students of Industrial Engineering and Management.
