My Academic Path

As an incoming freshman I was originally pre-med and started with a pre-major in BME. As time went on, I wasn't quite sure that BME was going to be a good fit for me. I realized that I wanted to just pursue an engineering degree so I dropped my pre-med plan. As I started looking into the other engineering majors, I made appointments with the advisors in each department I was interested in. I asked for students I could reach out to that were in each department to talk about their experiences. When I looked at all the curriculum sheets, some of the courses didn't catch my interest. I always had a gravitation to biology and that is when I came along Biological Engineering in the FABE department. I am extremely happy with my major decision because I am being challenged and learning so many things that I really enjoy.
