Jainita Chauhan, a senior in the Wm Michael Barnes ’64 Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, received the Craig C. Brown Outstanding Senior Engineer Award at the fall 2021 Texas A&M University College of Engineering student awards banquet.
 
The Craig C. Brown award, the most prestigious accolade given to an undergraduate student by the College of Engineering, is given to a student with outstanding achievements in scholarship and leadership, and whose character exceeds the standard.   
 
“Industrial engineering is an opportunity to always do something different, and an opportunity to learn more about yourself whether you’re in academia or industry,” Chauhan said. “I’ve learned that I have a passion for global involvement and global exposure, and that’s something I want to see myself pursuing in the future.”
 
Chauhan came to Aggieland from Garland, Texas, with her sights on engineering. She chose to pursue industrial and systems engineering because it provided her the opportunity to focus on her passions: time efficiency, operations, and global involvement and exposure.

Most recently, she worked the last two summers at Raytheon Technologies in operations and supply chain on the radar sensor systems team in Dallas, which she will join after graduation.
 
Chauhan is also the president of Alpha Pi Mu, the industrial engineering honors society, a global ambassador for the College of Engineering, and is involved in the Grand Challenge Scholars Program (GCSP), which allows students to pursue research and gain international and leadership experience while still working toward a degree.
 
“Industrial engineering gives us as individuals an opportunity to pursue our strongholds in any realm we can see fit,” Chauhan said. “For example, out of all of my peers that I sat at round tables with, in any class I took, we could all be industrial engineering majors and could all still be pursuing something different.”
 
Chauhan will graduate this spring and will join Raytheon Technologies. She also plans to pursue graduate school in the future and credits her family for her desire to further her education.
 
“My parents are very close to me and they have been one of my primary motivations. Receiving this award was always for them in my mind,” Chauhan said. “The support that my parents, family, and my friends have given means so much to me. My primary motivation is for my family, and I don’t know where I would have been without them and without (Texas A&M).”
