Biography

Hi! I have a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering with a concentration in power and energy systems from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign this December 2013 and I have a deep passion for technology and helping others. I assisted the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at my university with a video designed to empower and encourage local elementary and high school girls to become engineers by providing insight on the endless opportunities available. I also teach Engineering 100 which is a freshmen introductory course to engineering.I am also involved with the Morrill Engineering Program at my university. Changing the way the world views women professionally is one of my most biggest goals and engineering allows me to get a closer grab at it. I have a new career that awaits me as an Associate Systems Engineer for Cisco Systems that begins immediately after graduation. I am very outgoing and friendly and would love to answer any questions. I thank Jesus for guiding my way.

    I am a freshman in college and I am still undecided on what I should major in and what career path I should be thinking about. I am interested in engineering but I am unsure if that is the path I want to take and if it is what type of engineering to go into. I am afraid that I will get bored doing one thing everyday.

    Hi Dani,
    
    One thing is for sure, Electrical Engineering is a very flexible program of study. I, for instance, have interned for a few different companies, all of which, I did NOT sit at a desk all day. My current position, which is my first full time ...

    Hi, I wanted to choose Engineering as my profession but I wanted to ask how difficult is it. I mean if I study 5 to 6 hours per day, would it be enough to keep my G.P.A to the fullest? I'm good at Physics, average at maths but poor in chem. But If I had to study like 8 to 10 hours per day, then I'd consider another major.

    Hi Jem,
    
    Engineering might easily require you to study about 8 hours a day. This is because your homework will generally consist of problems that cannot be done in an hour or two. The problems usually require review of the lecture notes for that week, ...
