Performing research during my Undergraduate career was one of many experiences that gave me an edge when applying for graduate degree programs and future employment. I went on to complete my M.S. in Electrical Engineering at UB. Now I am a design engineer doing Research and Development at an industry leading technology company where I apply technology and data-driven insights to deliver a whole new level of efficiency, responsiveness and analytical capabilities to our customers.
While doing my undergraduate research, I was afforded the opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration while working directly with a faculty member. This allowed me to apply my skills and knowledge while learning from classmates around me. Research gave me the best real-life hands-on experience that I could find during the academic semester that included all aspects of product development. The opportunities are endless once you realize you are in control of your career.
