“For me, the labs were what made everything click. You could construct a circuit based on the theory learned in the classroom and compare your math to your measurements on a DMM or scope, tweaking values and observing their effects along the way. There was also a collaborative environment in the lab, where if some folks were struggling with a concept or a specific circuit, others could jump in and provide feedback on wiring, polarity of components, et cetera.”Trevor Best, ’09
“The balance that I found here with work, school, and other interests makes life a rich tapestry of experience and has led to opportunities that I had never expected, including an unforgettable engineering internship at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia this summer.”Will Jeffries, ’21
