Hello everyone!!!! My name is Charles Banuelos and I am the academic chair for SHPE at CSULB. I am originally from Castaic, CA where I went to high school at Valencia High School. I then went to community college at College of the Canyons where I received my two associate degrees in Math and Physics. I then transferred to CSULB to major in both Bio-Medical and Electrical engineering. The 2016-2017 academic year will be the start of my senior and second year here at CSULB. As academic chair, I will be running the SHPE study jams as well as soldering workshops. I want to increase the amount of attendance to these events so that everybody within SHPE can benefit from them by higher GPAs and better understanding of the material we are studying. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to send me an email or stop by the SHPE office on campus.
