My Academic Path

When I entered as a freshman, I was torn between Chemical and Aerospace Engineering. I didn't necessarily enjoy Chemistry coursework, but I was really good at those classes. However, while I wasn't as good at the physics and calculus work that seemed more applicable to aerospace, working with planes was a dream of mine. I ultimately decided on AAE because I felt that although it would require more effort and time to pursue this discipline, I would be happier in my future career if I was working with something I love. I made this decision by thinking long and hard on my own and also talking to my advisor. Looking back on my decision, while I have had some struggles, I still feel that I made the correct major decision.
