Hear from our faculty members
“Becoming an engineer is the professional epitome of responsibility meets innovation. The weight of societal expectation is omniscient, but I get to be creative in my problem solving and forge new ground-breaking (pardon the pun) solutions.
Everything is engineering – how can it not make a difference? There is always room for optimization, new designs and totally new solutions to the problems humankind faces. To me, ‘engineer’ and ‘problem solver’ are synonyms, and there will always be a need for us.”
