Spotlight: Electrical and Computer Engineering

Cornell Engineering Student SamuelHi! My name is Samuel and I am an electrical and computer engineering major from Palo Alto, California. I am a member of the mix subteam of Cornell’s Concrete Canoe project team, meaning I work on developing and testing different concrete designs for a new concrete boat that is built every year. As a huge chocolate fan I always get the Chocolate Gorges flavored ice cream wherever I can find it. While I’m on campus I enjoy participating in intramural sports as it gives me a chance to reignite the joy of sports I had played and loved as a kid.

My Favorite Class, CS 3110

A photo of a Cornell Engineering student, holding a flower arrangementEntering college, I had this expectation that my engineering classes would be a textbook heavy, stress inducing lifestyle that I just had to get accustomed to in order to succeed. This is what all my high school teachers told me — this is how their college experiences turned out, and thus my own experience had to mirror exactly. Yet, I quickly realized that almost all of the classes I have taken have proved this intuition wrong, eradicating the idea that textbooks are the only way to learn material and that professors are out to get us with unending problem sets and exams.
