Luis Sotelo Martin, Senior, Chemical Engineering

Luis Sotelo Martin has been involved in the Minority Engineering Program (MEP) throughout his studies at Purdue. He is a current member (and President Emeritus) of MAES (Latinos in Science and Engineering); is involved in two national honor societies  Phi Sigma Pi and Alpha Lambda Delta Phi Eta Sigma; and is also devoted to the Latino Cultural Center’s (LCC) Mentors and Embajadores program.

His advice for the next generation of Purdue students who might want to get involved with MAES, “The program helps to create a sense of family or ‘familia’ as well as advance the professional and academic careers of Hispanics in STEM majors on campus. I would say that it is important to get involved in clubs such as MAES in your first year  this is a way to network, build a resume, get help academically, and learn outside of the classroom.”

Luis plans to work as a Chemical Engineer in the industry for a few years before going on to graduate school to obtain a computer science degree. He aspires to work for NASA, Microsoft, or Google.
