I chose to major in engineering because it allows me to devote many hours to subjects within mathematics and the sciences, both of which I am very passionate about. After college, I expect an ever-evolving career that encourages creativity and provides opportunities to make an impact on the world we live in. I honestly could not ask for anything more in a career or major.
