Why McMaster Engineering?: "I chose McMaster engineering because engineering has been a part of me since I was a kid. I always marveled at how things work and when I understood how they worked, I had a sense of satisfaction and awe. I saw McMaster as my opportunity to solve everyday problems or problems humanity has not even thought of. Mac has amazing support in terms of professors, peers with a common goal as well as a state of the art facility. I also like that Mac offers co-op as part of the program. I believe that practical knowledge is just as significant as in class knowledge. With co-op, I will be able to enhance my practical knowledge of the working world."
What excites you most about coming to McMaster?: "I will be in an environment full of friends with a common goal, the drive needed to succeed and receive a quality education. With the right environment, I believe that we can prosper together in terms intellectual and emotional growth."
