Student Spotlights

Krysten Mah | Engineering World Health Summer Institute

"I decided to study biomedical engineering so that I could help find solutions to medical problems occurring in under-developed nations. With all the medical advances that biomedical engineers create, it is surprising that millions of people around the world suffer from diseases that we can easily treat in the United States."

"I looked at it as an opportunity to apply what I learned, and actually make something that could one day be useful. That was why I wanted to become an engineer in the first place."


Esther Foo | Extracurricular Activities

"I participate in various extra-curricular activities because I certainly do not believe in studying around the clock. I find that having other activities keeps my college life fun."

"I think it is important for those of us in engineering to represent engineering in order to allow students to make decisions based on experiences with real engineers, rather than based on stereotypes they've learned."
