My Academic Path

My freshman year I struggled a lot with choosing a major as an undeclared student. What really helped me was looking at the curriculum for the majors I was considering, especially upper level and technical elective courses, and seeing which had classes that appealed the most to me. Looking at the companies that were coming to the career fairs on campus and seeing what types of internships they offered for each major helped as well. Finally, I spoke to older students and considered the labs that we were doing in my introductory engineering class that were representative of various majors. At this point in my college career I feel confident that I have landed myself in the correct major.
