Joseph Whaley
Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Why did you choose to attend UB?

UB is an excellent school for the price and the only SUNY school that offers Aerospace Engineering. There are also many opportunities and clubs related to aerospace engineering at UB.

Why did you decide to major in MAE?

I love math and science and engineering is a way to apply their utility to real world problems. I am very happy with my decision.

What is your fondest memory so far at UB?

Tasting the "Boom Boom" sauce from Fowl Play for the first time.

What will you miss most about being a UB undergrad?

Not being around the people I've become friends with over the last 4 years. There's something about suffering through the same classes together that really brings you closer to one another.

What is your advice to current and incoming MAE students?

If you are studying, don't set your goal to study for a certain amount of time, set your goal to study until you understand the topic you are learning.
