Welcome to Southern California Chapter

ASEI Southern California Chapter welcomes you! We are a fast-growing organization cultivating networking, mentoring and career growth opportunities for students and professionals in STEM. Join us to share, learn and give back to our communities.

Our chapter was formed in 2004 by five visionaries from the Boeing Company: Paul Sikand, Darsh Aggarwal, Jay Patel, Ravi Kahandal, and Sham Hariram. Subsequently, several engineering leaders from various reputable aerospace companies in the LA and Orange County areas came together with the vision to build a strong ASEI chapter in Southern California.

Our chapter strives to be a vibrant organization providing its members with professional networking events, community service opportunities, and mentoring.

"ASEI Southern California has a rich history of inspiring our next generation of STEM students and professionals with key opportunities and active community service over the past fifteen plus years. My team and I are looking forward to jumpstarting networking, mentoring and community activities that make a difference for our STEM audience in 2024 and beyond." - Vrunda Patel, ASEI SoCal President
