University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering students Dimple Pajwani and Monica Greak were recognized as outstanding engineering students by the Texas Society of Professional Engineers during their annual Outstanding Students Engineers Week ceremony at the UH Hilton Hotel.

Pajwani, an electrical engineering major, was named the Outstanding Senior Student. Greak, an industrial engineering major, is the Outstanding Junior Student. For their achievements, Pajwani and Greak received monetary scholarship awards from TSPE.

Pajwani also received The Wilbur L. and Judy L. Meier award, which recognizes undergraduate students in the UH Cullen College of Engineering whose outstanding qualities of character, scholarship, leadership and citizenship have positively influenced fellow students and contributed to the prestige and well being of their college and to the reputation of the University as a whole.

Greak and Pajwani are both extremely involved in campus activities. Greak is active in International Society of Industrial Engineers and the Houston Women's Soccer Association. She was the team leader of the students representing the UH at the 2003 National IIE Student Simulation Competition, and the Department Student Representative at the Dean's Industry Advisory Board.

Pajwani is active in the Honors Electrical Engineering Society, the Society of Women Engineers, and Engineering Ambassadors. She is particularly enthusiastic about her experience studying abroad because it diversified her student experience.
