Why Marquette Engineering? Marquette's focus on a liberal arts education was part of what drew me to become a Marquette Engineer. While the technical Engineering skills I've learned are important, the essential skills I've developed at Marquette are even more important to me. When I was in high school, I had a family friend who was a Marquette Engineering Alumni, who struck me as extremely principled and deeply caring. When I was touring colleges, Marquette Engineers seemed special because they didn't just think about how to do something, but also about the ethical implications of their work.
Career Goals: After graduation, I want to work with a company that is pushing the envelope on sustainability, whether it be through outside-of-the-box sustainable transportation, creating less environmentally impactful alternatives to meat, or developing a more renewable energy-based electricity grid. I also want to continue to mentor adolescents through a robotics team and help develop future generations of passionate problem solvers.
