Sainan Chelvarajah (Mechatronics and Biomedical Engineering)

FIRST allowed me to understand how design works to how to communicate a design to others. It provided a good transition from being in robotics club to actually making robotics and automation my ultimate career goal.

Your FIRST Robotics experience
From FIRST, I learned many things from design to implementation, to learning about tools for the first time. It really allowed me to pursue and understand why engineering was meant for me. I provided the gap in learning, that I wouldn't be able to learn anywhere else.

Why McMaster?
I decided to go to McMaster because of the community. I would say there is no other community that can trump McMasters. The faculty, staff and students are one big family and that is something you can't somewhere else.

How did FIRST help prepare you for your university program?
