College can be a stressful time. There are exams, projects, day to day assignments and homework that all need to be completed simultaneously. “Is there an end in sight to this?” or “Will I ever be ahead of it all?” If you ask these or similar questions, know you are not alone.Kailey Bradt '15Chemical Engineering BS
One of the first questions I am always asked when I hand someone my business card or introduce myself is, “You’re an engineer?” As a 22-year-old female engineer, the way I present myself continues to be extremely important in the workplace.Amanda Weissman '09Electrical Engineering BS & Materials Science and Engineering MS
When you’re a student, it’s easy to continue learning and developing your skills. Classes and extracurriculars are abundant, in addition to speakers and many other opportunities.
