Anne-Marie Warren had her sights set on architectural engineering when she was in high school. She attended a pre-engineering management program through the Civil Engineering and Architecture Department, took Project Lead The Way classes and participated in Technology Student Association (TSA). Going the extra mile in high school help Warren decided on the right major and propelled her forward as she set off for college.
Where to go for college was her next mountain to climb. After extensive high school experience testing out the engineering world and experimenting with different disciplines, she set out to find a school that matched her passion.
“When I did my research about MSOE, I found that it was a challenging school that would push you to your limits of what you thought possible,” said Warren. “And after graduation, you would have all the tools you needed to be successful.”
At MSOE, Warren stays busy by participating in multiple campus groups. She is part of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), a group that focuses on increasing the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community. Last year she had the honor of serving as president and this year she will serve as pre-collegiate initiative chair.
“I have the opportunity to be in a role that our chapter has not been able to have in the past. In this role, I will be working with young people to encourage them about all that the STEM fields can offer.”
Another new venture for Warren this year is her participation as a student fellow in the CREATE Institute. The CREATE Institute works to spread the MSOE Mindset and implement educational experiences. Warren was especially interested in CREATE after being exposed to project learning through one of her classes and really enjoyed the learning experience.
“I understand how important it is to allow students to have the opportunity to have different ways to learn. I am most looking forward to working with other fellows and creating a sustainable program.”
Warren enjoys traveling and experiencing new people. After returning from her study abroad program in the Czech Republic, she spent the summer interning at John Deere in Waterloo, Iowa.
“Working at John Deere this summer was an amazing chance to broaden my knowledge in the engineering field and network with interns from all over the U.S.”
