‘#Imagination at #Work’

Amanda Emrich, a biomedical engineering student in NIU’s College of Engineering and Engineering Technology, spent her summer interning for one of the largest U.S. multinational conglomerate corporations, General Electric. Emrich focused on CT scanners (a dream for biomedical engineering majors) at General Electric Healthcare. CT scanners (computerized tomography) are responsible for medicine and biology diagnosis discoveries – the very problems biomedical engineers look to solve every day.

General Electric Gold sponsor at #HackMIT event

Opening ceremony in MIT’s Kresge Auditorium

Over a thousand software programmers or “hackers” as they call themselves, from over 140 universities spend 30 straight hours working in teams, designing and developing software applications. GE provided engineering and recruiting talent in support of its Industrial Internet focus, as a Gold sponsor of the event. During the hackathon, GE representatives presented a tech-talk, where they introduced a software platform and API that enabled student-hackers to engage in crowd-sourced engineering design with embedded simulation services; additionally, GE representatives mentored the young software innovators, offering invaluable software know-how to student hackers.

Meet Rudy Chavez: “The work I do makes a real impact”

Rudy Chavez

Rodolfo “Rudy” Chavez received his Computer Engineering in 2009 from Marquette University. He has always felt a strong tie to the health care industry, having grown up in a family of medical professionals, but ultimately knew he wanted to work with technology. When the opportunity presented itself to do an internship with GE Healthcare, it seemed like the perfect way to synthesize his familiarity with health care and his interest in computer science. As a software engineer in the two-year GE Edison Engineering Development Program, Rudy is able to program technology and create products that make an impact.
