Tara Rahmani is a Junior Industrial Engineering student at the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE).  She wants to be an Industrial Engineer in the healthcare industry, preferably in a hospital, with the goal of decreasing the number of medical mistakes per year.  She gets excited about innovation and opportunities to be creative.  

Tara has been involved with the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) since the end of her freshman year. She held the position of Outreach Chair her sophomore year and hosted events such as Hands-On Future, Siblings in STEM, and various other events with different classes from Milwaukee area schools and Girl Scout Troops. Her junior year she became section president.  Tara’s goal as current President of this section is to continuously improve the already exemplary SWE section and to expand their outreach to all grades, K-12, and to more MSOE students. This year, she began a mentoring program for their members called SWE Women In Mentoring (SWIM). It allows the current officers to act as mentors to the general members, whether it be in their academic, professional, or personal life.

Additionally, this year Tara became an advisor for the first SWE Next section in the state of Wisconsin at South Milwaukee High School. SWE Next is a SWE section for middle and high school students.  She is acting as a mentor for the members and helping them plan events such as plant tours and hands-on workshops.

Aside from SWE, Tara is a member of Lambda Zeta Nu sorority at MSOE.  She has held the position of Educational Chair, and currently holds the executive board position of Treasurer. LZN’s pillars are to focus on philanthropy, specifically breast cancer awareness, and education.

Overall, Tara likes to be involved through organizations on campus.  Her favorite events are events with other organizations so she can network both professionally and to make new friends.  In her free time, she enjoys catching up with friends and catching up on sleep.
