Spotlight: Mechanical Engineering
My favorite place on campus is Beebe Lake on North Campus. I love to go there and walk around the lake, especially during the fall. The bright yellows and reds remind me of home!
Once I graduate, I plan to utilize my problem solving skills and background in mechanics to pursue biomedical research and make a clinical impact. I hope to develop novel therapeutics in the medical field and eventually work at a medical technology company to make a difference in the healthcare industry. I love that mechanical engineering is an extremely versatile major, and it offers me the ability to use my passion for physics and math to create innovative technologies for the medical field.
Other mechanical engineers go on to work in a variety of different industries, such as aerospace, architecture, construction, electronics, consumer goods, and defense. Some even apply their skills in finance, law, sales, and technical consulting.
