"Every time an airbag deploys to save a life, every time a parachute works, or a plane stays in the sky, every day a building stands, it’s thanks to engineers. The need for cleaner energy drew me into Electrical engineering, and I knew, as a small school in a big university UB would provide the perfect environment for me."
