Meet Eurydice Kanimba, PhD, advisory engineer at IBM, three-time ASME Foundation scholarship recipient, and national ping-pong silver medalist in her home country of Rwanda. According to Ury, the “P” in PhD “stands for problem-solver.”

Eurydice “Ury” Kanimba earned three degrees with the help of ASME Foundation scholarships, most recently her PhD in mechanical engineering at Virginia Tech. Now this Rwandan immigrant and former ASME student section leader is giving back, not only in her role as an advisory engineer at IBM, but as a mentor to young women who aspire to be engineers just like her. Ury’s inspiring story shows the power and the potential of early engagement with ASME.
