  • Engineering a Culture of Inclusion and Diversity

    Emerald White, an undergraduate in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is making her voice heard through active participation in many different on-campus organizations. Although White attended a high school focused heavily on the fine arts, her interest in robotics and healthcare drew her to STEM. She entered Tech as a biomedical engineering major, motivated by the healthcare inequality present in not only her neighborhood but in many Black and underrepresented minority communities.
