Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Major
I am a student manager at the UB Nanosatellite Laboratory, Council of Chairs Representative for SEDS (Students for Exploration & Development of Space), and a general member of AiAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) and SWE (Society of Women Engineers).
When I'm not doing homework or being involved on campus, I am also a volunteer firefighter! I have been doing so since I was 16.
There are so many opportunities here at UB! Personally, it was super exciting to be a part of sending a real satellite up to space. There are many ways to get involved in research with different professors, go to conferences, and all around explore your passions. Even more, the faculty and staff really do want you to succeed and will help you find your way to these opportunities.
