Welcome to SOLES!
Welcome to SOLES!
Founded in the 1980s, the Society of Latino Engineers and Scientists dedicates itself to the advancement of Latino engineers and scientists. SOLES encourages participation of all students and is comprised primarily of Latino students from a variety of backgrounds and with an emphasis in engineering and science. The purpose of this organization is to arouse an academic involvement, create community outreach programs, and form academic support groups. We achieve this by building student unity, providing professional and leadership development, and offering workshops, guest speakers, conferences, retreats, fundraisers, and social activities.
To promote a support system to cultivate the professional development skills necessary for Latinos to succeed in science and engineering.
To become an organization recognized campus-wide and amongst companies as a producer of professional engineers and scientists.
The SOLES Outreach Committee coordinates two major events: Shadow Day and Noches de Ciencias.
An event to share with students a typical day for a science or engineering student at San Jose State University. This includes attending classes, laboratories, study sessions, college of engineering, club project rooms as well a tour of the campus. In addition, students will have the opportunity to interact with SJSU students and ask them questions via an interactive panel.
