Why did you choose to study electrical engineering?
I chose electrical engineering because it seemed right to compliment my studies in computer engineering since having knowledge in both software and hardware will allow me to further my understanding in how modern technology works with each other.
What do you like best about EE?
I enjoy learning about how we can use existing hardware to meet the demands of solving complex problems.
What makes UB Electrical Engineering special?
UB Electrical Engineering is very affordable and convenient given its close proximity to my home, while allowing me to immerse myself in a diverse environment.
As an EE Undergraduate Research Scholar with Professor Jonathan Bird, I got a lot of hands-on experience working the cleanroom. I learned about the semiconductor fabrication process which helped develop my view on semiconductors and microelectronics as a whole.
A favorite memory of your experiences in engineering thus far?
Being given the opportunity to study abroad in Singapore is definitely one of my fondest memories, even though it didn't take place on campus! UB Study Abroad provided me the ability to move to another place in the world not knowing a single person - a life-changing experience in itself. It also forced me to immerse myself and better understand different cultures. It left me with wonderful memories and great friends, many of whom I keep in touch with to this day, some of which I have already met up with since returning.
What are your plans following graduation?
I plan on traveling for a short while before working in the industry. From there, I am hoping to make great contributions.
