Jane Eisenhauer ’09: Systems Engineer

As a systems engineer in Raytheon’s integrated defense systems division, Jane Eisenhauer works with radar systems that identify and track incoming targets (such as missiles). Before live tests of these radar systems, she conducts pre-mission simulations and analyzes and identifies the causes of anomalous behavior. She’s also pursuing a master’s degree at Northeastern University in electrical and computer engineering leadership. She still plays field hockey (as she did at Gordon), and fits in yoga and broomball regularly, too. Jane writes of her work, “I love my job at Raytheon. As a systems engineer, I get to design and study complex systems. This requires critical thinking, logical analysis, functional decomposition, and clearly presenting my ideas to engineering and program leadership. These are all skills that I developed and matured while at Gordon.”
