“The opportunity to apply what I have learned in the classroom to help those in need is extremely rewarding. Not only have I been fortunate enough to travel to Honduras, but I have been able to gain a global perspective of the challenges that engineers face. To me, it is extremely rewarding to work on projects that will have a direct impact on the public, whether that be a new wastewater treatment plant or cleaning a Brownfield site to allow for new use. Engineers play a key role in communities as well as society, whether they are fully recognized for their contributions or not. I look forward to a fulfilling career where I can create and implement designs that will better the lives of the communities where I work."
