Evolving Engineering

Team Lead

Pavan Mohan, pavan.mohan@ucalgary.ca

Hello everyone! My name is Pavan Mohan and I am a first year engineering student at the University of Calgary. Outside of the classroom, one of my favorite hobbies is public speaking, specifically Model United Nations (MUN) and Debate.

I was drawn to EWB, and particularly this position because of the manner in which they have helped revolutionize the engineering profession by challenging the norms and standards that we attach to being a ‘good’ engineer. As this year’s Evolving Engineering co-leader, I am looking forward to working with all members to further advance the strategic goals of EWB and to ultimately help usher in a new era of engineering.

I am one of the Fair-trade executives this school year! Fair-trade is an ever-growing field and I look forward to working with the EWB team to raise awareness about the small changes we can do together to live more sustainably. Being part of EWB has taught me much and I look forward to seeing all the change we can do as a collective!

Team Lead

Alessandra Chan, alessandra.chan1@ucalgary.ca

I am in my third and last year of an Honours degree in Political Science at the University of Calgary. While finishing my undergraduate degree, I have held several leadership positions in multiple clubs where I have been working towards building education initiatives for topics on mental health, homelessness, and fair trade. I have a passion for reducing inequalities through preventative action and quality education and I aim to spread awareness that transcends my campus.

I joined due to the work I did with the EWB UCalgary Chapter’s Fair Trade Venture as a general volunteer in Fall of 2019 and I received the opportunity to be a Session Speaker at Canada’s 8th National Fair Trade Conference.

What I enjoy most about what I do is making tangible change and empowering other students to pursue their own passions.
