Level of Study: BS in Math and Electrical Engineering '14; MS '16

Why did you choose to study electrical engineering?

I chose to study electrical engineering because I enjoy to challenge myself and use my skills to solve problems.

What are your areas of interest in EE?

My favorite aspect of electrical engineering is that it never gets boring, as there is always something new to learn everyday. My areas of interest are semiconductor, micro-fabrication and nanotechnology.

What do you appreciate about Electrical Engineering at UB?

What makes UB Electrical Engineering valuable is the education that we get for the price that we pay, as UB is part of the State University of New York.

There are many courses and projects that have been really interesting, the most memorable one was Dr. Burke's Electronic Circuit Lab course when I was an undergraduate because I got to work with an awesome lab partner to work on hands-on projects.

We are fortunate to be in a very international-focused school, as UB has one of the largest International Student bodies in the country. I got involved with many international clubs through the Student Association, and was part of the Executive Board of one of the Clubs. I get to meet people from every corner of the world, by getting involved in the activities here at UB.

What made you decide to continue from undergrad to graduate study?

I decided to stay at UB following my undergraduate degree because I really enjoyed my classes and wanted to continue my studies to learn more. UB is a great school and I get to have a great education, by paying less than other schools.

What are your plans following graduation?

I plan to work in an engineering firm where I can use my skills and experiences gained here at the UB.
