A photo of Cornell Engineering student KennyHello!  My name is Kenny and I am a senior Mechanical Engineering major from Palo Alto, CA.  I am currently a team lead on Cornell Baja Racing, a project team that designs and builds off-road buggies to race against other collegiate teams.  I am also part of a research lab in the Space Systems Design Studio on a team building a small sat that will be traveling to lunar orbit on the inaugural flight of NASA’s SLS.  During my junior year I also participated in Cornell’s engineering co-op program, spending eight consecutive months working on satellite hardware at SpaceX. My favorite place on campus is the Experiential Learning Lab which is in the basement of Upson Hall.  Its home to a majority of the project team workspaces and the Emerson Machine Shop where my Baja team machines most of the parts on our car.  The ELL also home to Autolab, an automotive garage workspace where we do all our welding and assembly.

My Experience with Project Team Cornell Cup Robotics

Cornell Engineering studnet StanleyGoing to college isn’t only about the classes that one can take, it’s also about the opportunities that one can pursue outside of class. Luckily, Cornell has no shortage of these opportunities. As a freshman engineer, I remember being overwhelmed by all the activities and teams that were available; having just arrived, I wasn’t expecting to have such a wide selection of opportunities immediately available to me. But I took advantage of it, and joined one of the project teams, called Cornell Cup Robotics. Read more

My Favorite Engineering Class

Cornell Engineering student EliasMy favorite engineering class at Cornell so far has got to be CS 2110/ENGRD 2110. One of the most common computer science courses at Cornell it delves into a lot of the fundamentals of computer science while utilizing the basics taught in an introductory class. It covers a lot of need to know concepts such as traversal of binary trees, heaps, linked lists, and shortest path. The whole course is also taught in Java, a standard, extremely common language which gives students good experience with which they can take with them into personal projects, internships, or eventually work.
