Christine Pembroke - Undergraduate Student Profile


An upbeat, community-minded Construction Management student who is amazed every day by her professors’ expertise, Pembroke sings about the phenomenal experience at the School of Engineering.

Christine Pembroke (Construction Management, 2014) developed an interest in AutoCAD at Brooklyn Technical High School, motivating her to study at the School of Engineering. A summer internship with Turner Construction after freshman year gave her a desire to work in the field, where she turns the tables on male colleagues by joking about pink helmets and boots. Christine serves on the Executive Board of the School of Engineering chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers, and helps organize A Walk for Education, promoting engineering in underrepresented communities by handing out information on college applications and financial aid.

For the last two years, she has sung the National Anthem during graduation ceremonies at Lincoln Center. The School of Engineering experience is special to Christine because her professors provide an outstanding education along with invaluable advice from their industry background — so she’ll be ready for when it’s her turn.
