September 20, 2018 – Maureen Masiulis, a program manager in Tactical Solutions at Ball Aerospace, has been recognized with the 2018 Society of Women Engineers’ (SWE) Emerging Leader Award. The Emerging Leader award honors any woman engineer who has been actively engaged in an engineering or technology profession, has demonstrated outstanding technical excellence as an individual resulting in significant accomplishments, and has 10 to 15 years of cumulative engineering experience.
Masilius is an active SWE member and has been engaged with the organization since 2008 when she joined the Awards & Recognition Committee as an individual award coordinator. From there she went on to serve in leadership roles, including: chair of the Awards & Recognition Committee and President for the Members at Large (MAL) organization. She is currently the chair of the Society Bylaws Committee.
“I have had the privilege of working with Maureen both at SWE and now Ball, she is incredibly deserving of this recognition,” said Heather Doty, engineering integration manager and SWE treasurer. “Her natural leadership and dedication deem her a role model as she sets an example for the next generation of engineers.”
Masiulis’s career in engineering spans 15 years, where she has worked across the aerospace industry. In her current role at Ball, she leads an engineering development team that helps advance our country’s military technology and overall national security. Prior to joining Ball, Masiulis worked at Raytheon and General Dynamics where she took part in engineering development projects both as an individual contributor and as a project lead.
Masiulis holds a B.S. in electrical engineering and computer systems engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, a M.S. in electrical and computer engineering and a MBA from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as a SWE Emerging Leader,” said Masiulis. “I am proud to be a part of a community that contributes to life-changing empowerment and achievements of women engineers.”
