Khushi Upadhyay | Excel Lassonde
“Being able to be a part of Excel Lassonde has been a great experience for me. I first started as one of the executive officers a year ago. It has helped me learn about different aspects of human nature in the engineering field. Working with people of different mindsets but the same goal shows that there is more than one solution to a problem, and there are no wrong answers. I am very glad to be able to be part of this community. I believe Excel Lassonde has been a great help to students with the tutoring sessions we provide. I am excited as one of the Co-presidents alongside Mohaimen, to help my fellow engineers as they join and learn through our Excel Lassonde community.”

Mohaimen Hassan | Excel Lassonde
“I have been a part of Excel Lassonde for nearly three years now and it has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. I started out as a tutor, became an executive member and now I am one of the co-presidents, alongside Khushi. The purpose of Excel Lassonde has always been to assist students in achieving their potential – through 1:1 tutoring sessions and drop-ins for different courses. Everyone at Excel Lassonde genuinely believes in the mission to make the lives of students easier, which makes it an amazing team to be a part of. With the upcoming terms being in person we can’t wait to enable more students in getting grades they strive for!”

Being in the Lassonde Engineering Society club for 3 years (and counting) has been a great learning experience for me and has allowed me to grow in many positive ways. It has constantly challenged me to solve complex problems and collaborate with my peers on a variety of projects. Learning about the human factor within engineering is difficult, maybe even impossible in a lecture setting. This is where the Engineering Society shines and provides an environment for Lassonde Engineers to develop their communication and collaboration skills, that will help them in their professional careers. Vincent, President, Lassonde Engineering Society
