Welcome to Diane Peters' website
SWE is an organization that's been very valuable to me, as I've progressed through my career. I've made friends, built an extensive network, received encouragement, and learned a lot. Because of the value I see in SWE, I chose to become a Life Member some time ago.
Currently, I serve SWE as the faculty advisor for Kettering's A and B collegiate sections and as the Coordinator for faculty advisors and counselors. In the past, I have served in multiple roles, including the Region H MAL representative and the chair of the Women in Academia committee for the 2016 SWE Fiscal Year.
I'm involved with FIRST Robotics as a mentor for Team 1506, Metal Muscle. We've done some great stuff, and made some really interesting robots over the past two years. We've also done some team-building activities; in one of these, we went to a Ropes type of course.
I've been a member of Tau Beta Pi since my junior year at Notre Dame, where I was inducted into the Indiana Gamma chapter. I currently serve as one of the faculty advisors to Tau Beta Pi at Kettering University. The Tau Beta Pi students at Kettering have done some really great things; one of their recent service projects was building agility equipment for the shelter at Animal Control in Genesee County.
I joined ASEE while I was at the University of Michigan, and currently serve in both the Graduate Studies Division and the Mechanical Engineering Division.
