Hi everyone, my name is Raeiti, and I am entering my fourth year of Environmental Engineering at UBC. I am excited to be one of the Engineering Career Peer Coaches (ECPC) for the 2023-24 year! I’ve completed 16 co-op work terms in hydrogeology, transportation and environment contamination, along with a 4 month exchange experience through CIE. During my free time, I like to go to the gym and bike around the city.

I'm Colin and I'm super excited to be an Engineering Career Peer Coach (ECPC). I'm a fifth year Electrical Engineering international student at the UBC Vancouver campus. Before I called Vancouver home, the hot desert city of Dubai is where I was born and raised. I've completed 12 co-op work terms as a Software Engineer for Motorola Solutions. I enjoy hiking, cooking, and meeting new people. Please feel free to reach out to me if you're looking for advice or just want to chat about how to break into the industry. I'm excited to work with you through the next year!
