STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

Electrical and computer Engineering undergrad student at The University of Akron

I have always been interested in electronics. When I was a kid, I loved helping set up things like TVs and VCRs around the house. Engineering provides me with the opportunity to create something out of nothing. The campus is beautiful, and the engineering program is excellent. I am very happy I made the decision to go to UA!”
