Engineering Management Honor Society Welcomes 12 New Members at ODU
A dozen Old Dominion University engineering management students have been inducted into the Alpha Alpha Chapter of Epsilon Mu Eta, the engineering management honor society.
The students received the honor at a ceremony earlier this month.
The graduate students in engineering management have an average GPA of 3.92. They are Thomas Bock, Ipek Bozkurt, Van Brewer, Behnido Calinda, Paul Garvey, Joseph Gelardi, George Guvernator, Garret Haltiwanger, Christos Kaltsonoudis, Samuel Kovacic, Mark Leary and Breton Wilbun.
They join 42 other students previously inducted into Epsilon Mu Eta.
The Alpha Alpha Chapter is open to students enrolled in master's and doctoral programs in engineering management. The chapter was founded in April 2003, and membership is by invitation only.
Faculty adviser Rafael Landaeta, an assistant professor of engineering management and systems engineering at ODU, said members must display superior academic achievement and exemplary character.
"Superior character is defined by the student's leadership, professionalism, integrity and other demonstrated principles that define the core values of engineering managers," Landaeta said.
