My Academic Path

I used my classes like ENGR 1181 and Physics 1250 & 1251 a lot to decide on my major. During the 1181 labs I loved building different structures and working with MATLAB, and after talking to my professor he recommended considering mechanical engineering because of that. I also loved physics 1250 and 1251 so I chose to major in engineering physics with a specialization in mechanical engineering. Being over a year into my major I could not be happier, it helped me land two internships over the past two summers.
