Elected Officers for 2016-2017


President: Conor Hennessey

I came to Oregon State to study electrical engineering, and I got involved in Engineers Without Borders shortly after.  Last summer I travelled to Los Potrerillos, Nicaragua, to work on our project there, and meet our partner community. This summer, I am working for the electrical utility in Newport, Oregon. Outside of school, I like music, reading, and hiking – especially anywhere with a waterfall.


Vice President: Julianne Robinson

I am a sophomore in Ecological Engineering and Spanish.  I joined EWB because I am passionate about engineering and service; I hope to someday work internationally.  I am also involved in research on campus, and I enjoy running, hiking, and being outdoors.


Treasurer: John Ren


Secretary: Michaela Mockler-Martens


Executive Board Member: Liz Byron

The Engineers Without Borders chapter at OSU was one of the first groups I joined upon entering college three years ago.  The club provided a unique combination of international and humanitarian-focused work with the opportunity to apply technical engineering skills. Since joining, the club has provided the opportunity to meet amazing individuals (other students and professionals alike), develop practical skills, and become a more conscientious, globally-aware engineer.  I’m currently studying Ecological Engineering and am planning on pursuing a career in water resources, with the goal of working internationally in the future.  When I’m not at EWB meetings or in classes, I can usually be found rock climbing, dancing, hiking, or reading a good book.
