Local graduate wins US engineering prize

A Guadalajara university graduate has claimed a prestigious engineering award in the United States.

The award is organized by the Engineers’ Club of Philadelphia, one of the oldest professional clubs in the United States, with a 135-year history of promoting engineering in the United States.

Sujo, 35, is a Chemical Engineering graduate from the Western Institute of Technology and Higher Education (ITESO) in Guadalajara. Born to accountant parents in Torreon, northern Mexico, Daniel pursued his undergraduate degree in Guadalajara and was ultimately awarded an Outstanding Performance Award by the Chemical Engineering Department.

He continued his studies in the United States, earning a master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Rowan University, New Jersey.

After finishing his studies, Daniel remained in New Jersey, building an impressive resume as he rose through the ranks of Siegfried, a pharmaceutical manufacturer, and Ferro Corporation, a technology firm.

In 2012, he joined Inolex in Philadelphia, where he is currently based.

The Engineers’ Club of Philadelphia recognized Daniel’s focus on social justice and equality, and noted that his engineering work has a particular focus on sustainability.
