GEL Alumnae Share How GEL Has Helped Them in their Careers

In this video, two GEL alumnae share how the program helped them to guide their career paths, and how they continue to benefit from the lessons they learned in GEL. Nora Micheva (GEL '10) is a Program Manager at Microsoft; Ariadne Smith (GEL '10) is attending graduate school at MIT.

The Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program provides aspiring engineering undergraduate Juniors and Seniors realistic leadership and engineering experience during their time at MIT. The program also offers exciting opportunities to develop essential engineering leadership skills, impact society, and plan for and strengthen students' career options.

In GEL, students hone their leadership skills through an intensive combination of classroom activities and through a series of hands-on, real-life authentic engineering leadership challenges. GELs practice what they learn through complex problem-solving exercises and intensive evaluation, both by themselves and with their teammates. The leadership skills st develop in the program are in an engineering context.
