Shariar had great passion for both engineering and higher education. He received a BS in Electrical Power Engineering from Tehran University, a MS in Electrical Power Engineering from George Washington University, and his MBA from the Wharton School of Business. Shariar actively contributed to the engineering community by serving on various boards for universities and professional associations. In 2009, the 7X24 DC Chapter was re-created. Shariar was instrumental in its reformation and provided multiple resources to bring this chapter to life.
In addition to being an industry recognized engineer, Shariar had a true entrepreneurial spirit. Following his retirement from GE, Shariar was the founder and CEO of both Primary Integration, LLC and EDG2, Inc., a spin-off of his prior engineering company founded in 1986.
The chapter is honored to provide these scholarships in memory of Shariar Zaimi, a great engineer, leader, mentor, and entrepreneur that devoted so much of his life to the engineering industry.
