The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) has selected Aryana Nakhai, a University of Pittsburgh undergraduate electrical engineering student, as the recipient of its 2018 Lockheed Martin Corporation Scholarship totaling $2,500 for the 2018-19 academic year.
“This award is recognition of Aryana’s incredible passion for power systems and electrical engineering, and it speaks to the engineering community’s confidence that she will contribute great things during her professional career,” said Gregory Reed, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the Swanson School of Engineering and director of Pitt’s Center for Energy and the Energy GRID Institute.
Nakhai has been a member of Pitt SWE since her freshman year in 2014.
Nakhai is studying electrical engineering with a concentration on power systems. She is scheduled to graduate in December 2018 and plans to pursue a master’s degree at Pitt after graduation.
