As a senior mechanical engineering student, I have skills typically related to engineering. These include skills such as Solidworks, Matlab, and manufacturing. However, I also possess strong engineering management skills that I intend to use in my professional career following graduation. I have always been a very organized person and pride myself on that, but my engineering education has also equipped me with a strong problem solving mindset. I hope to go into a consulting position, ideally in NYC, because I feel that this would put all of my skills to good use. Furthermore, I think it is something I would enjoy which is how I can gage my success. Being a female in engineering, specifically mechanical, can be difficult at times because it is such a male dominated field, but I am excited for the challenge.
I enjoy working on teams because sometimes I don’t have enough ideas and sometimes I have too many to put into one cohesive design. I intend to use my teammates, both for this upcoming final project and in my career, to create the best possible solutions that I can.
