I chose to study aerospace engineering because designing a rocket or plane is incredibly interesting to me and is something that could change the course of our future. I hope to graduate with a degree in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics and minors in Spanish Studies and Astrophysics. I like the aerospace program because it teaches fascinating, engineering-pertinent knowledge while incorporating opportunities to see these concepts in the real world.
