My Academic Path

I came to OSU knowing I would enjoy engineering, but not what type. My choice, in the end, depended on my previous experience as well as information provided by current students and advisors. Since I liked working on cars throughout high school, I figured ME would be a great fit; I quickly learned otherwise while taking my first physics class. I also loved AP Chemistry in high school, so I narrowed my choices down to CBE and MSE. After talking to advisors and peers in respective majors, I found that MSE was the best fit for me. After recently starting MSE specific courses, I like where I am and enjoy the content of the classes despite the difficulty.
