I was about 8 years old when I was first invited to a cockpit. Having walked into the flight deck, I immediately fell in love with the plethora of buttons, switches, and screens in such a small space. As time passed, my passion for aviation only grew stronger and access to the internet meant that I could explore aircraft in much more depth. That fascination with researching the mechanics behind aircraft and the future transformation of aviation always inspired me to pursue Aerospace Engineering for my undergraduate studies.
I am proud to be a second-year student of Aerospace Engineering with a minor in Business. The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) consists of passionate professors who are willing to actively explore unorthodox methods to help students conceptually understand their topics of study, making lectures very enjoyable and fruitful experience for students. Moreover, the MAE Department also consists of various student teams and societies to explore one’s passions. I tried to make the most out of it by participating in as many student societies and teams as possible, and I eventually became friends with students who shared the same hobbies and interests.
