“The E&M curriculum is truly one of a kind at a university that produces top-level individuals. As a first-year student I was pushed outside my comfort zone into a team-based project, and even as a rising senior I believe my knowledge stretches beyond the industry standards. There were many opportunities to concentrate on what I am passionate about while absorbing a broad understanding of the relationship between engineering and business practices.”
