CORVALLIS, Ore. – Alexandria Moseley, an engineering student at Oregon State University, has been named one of the 15 most promising college engineering students in the world as part of National Engineers Week.

Moseley, from Newberg, Ore., is a senior in the School of Mechanical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering at OSU, and was nominated for this “New Faces of Engineering” honor by the SME Education Foundation, which has provided her with scholarship support.

“The further I delve into my industrial and manufacturing engineering studies, the more aware I become of just how largely our society depends on this area of work,” Moseley said. “The opportunity to positively influence the field of manufacturing, whether by instruction or research, provides all the challenge and personal fulfillment I could ever desire in a career.”

Moseley has participated in several internships and projects while at OSU, served as a College of Engineering Ambassador, and been active in outreach programs to alumni, industry, prospective students and others.

This is the first year that National Engineers Week has recognized college engineering students. Winners were cited for their academic excellence, leadership in student organizations, community service and other activities.
