Why Engineering: "I love how engineering isn’t just math and science. It incorporates critical thinking and problem solving. It also amazes me how there are so many sub-disciplines in this field and they all intertwine; no discipline can stand alone. My dad works in construction so while I was growing up, I had a lot of exposure to his line of work. Construction management and transportation engineering fascinate me, and I enjoy the steps and processes that lead to the final product."
What the Engineering Scholars Program means to you: "As a Herdrich Scholar, I have been able to meet with much of the engineering faculty as well as other engineering scholars. I have been offered a phenomenal support system, where everyone strives to succeed and help one another succeed. I’ve attended a retreat with the other engineering scholars, and I realized that I am not alone in this college journey."
