Throughout my life I have always been a very artistic person. I loved my art classes in elementary through high school. If I had not gone into engineering for my degree I probably would have chosen something like animation. During my college career I never really had the opportunity to express my artistic capabilities, so this class is an amazing experience. I hope to be able to hone my creative skills and learn to incorporate them into my design projects.
As for what I would like to gain from all my classes before graduation, I want to gain a higher understanding of solving problems. The problems can be analysis or design based. I would like to gain the skills to be able to solve any problem I may run into. I think the most important skill is the ability to pick up new skills quickly in order to solve a problem. I feel this class helps me to achieve this. The projects for this class are not defined, I am going to run into problems I have not anticipated and I will have to learn to solve them. So out of all my other skills, this is the one I would like to master before graduation.
After graduation I want to get involved with aerospace. I have thought a lot about what I would like to do, from product development to bio-mechanical engineering, to energy. However, space has always captured my imagination. I believe it is the next frontier for human beings and I want to be a part of it. For this very reason my dream job would be at any of the big aerospace companies, like NASA, SpaceX, Lockheed Martin, etc. I want to be the one who develops new ways for humans to reach the heavens and perhaps one day I will get the chance to see the Earth as shown in the featured image.
