As up-and-coming engineers, we develop perspectives and ways of working that are essential to being good students and thorough researchers. Some of the approaches that help your inner engineer excel and continue to be valuable in all aspects of life. But others can hold your burgeoning inner leader back — causing you to feel at war with yourself. In this webinar, Jelena Kovačević, William R. Berkley Professor, and Dean of NYU Tandon will discuss the lessons she has learned on the path to becoming a successful researcher and leader, and the times that breaking with those engineering conventions have helped her inner engineer and inner leader become more at peace and, in turn, advanced her career.
Jelena Kovačević became the Dean of NYU Tandon in August 2018. She is the first woman to head the school since its founding in 1854 as the Brooklyn Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute. Under her leadership, the school has enrolled a record percentage of women — 46% of the class of 2023 — and achieved multiple awards from ASEE and the NCWIT to increase diversity and inclusion while continuing a historic jump of 44 spots to #36 in the U.S. News & World Report Rankings since 2009. She received her Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Belgrade, Yugoslavia, in 1986, and her MS and Ph.D. degrees from Columbia University, New York, NY, in 1988 and 1991, respectively. Before joining NYU, she was the Head of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. Jelena has also worked in the private sector at Bell Labs and was the co-founder and Technical VP of the company xWaveforms.
