Report #3 from Galway (Ellen Wittenberg)

Hi from Galway!

I'm spending the fall semester of my senior year at NUI in Galway, Ireland, and for the last two months have been enjoying all the adventures that come with studying in a foreign country - a new campus, new classes, new friends, and certainly some new challenges! As an underclassman at Purdue, I formed some great relationships, both academic and social, with my engineering peers. And now as a senior, I am thrilled to be studying abroad as part of the Purdue BME exchange program with NUI Galway. It has been the perfect opportunity to expand my world view and also work with engineering students and faculty that have a bit of a different perspective on the field of biomedical engineering.
