October 6, 2015 was the annual Majors Fair at FGCU, a time for respective ambassadors to display why they believed their major to be the best. Engineering Ambassadors David, Cassandra and Jessica were excited to tell me why.
What’s so special about engineering?
Well, according to Jessica, the software engineering student, it gives her a platform to do what she already loves. Naturally, she loves computers, math, programing and robotics. But, her secret love is gaming! She’s a hardcore gamer and she wants to get into game design.
David and Cassandra were the two bio-engineering students present who had some wonderful aspirations with their major. David just wants to help. How? Well he wants to use his degree to restore the quality of life to those who lost it and give it to those who never had it. He said he’s not just going to be an engineer but also a surgeon. He’ll use his knowledge in biomaterials and medical devices along with his expertise in medicine to really bridge the gap between biology and engineering.
Cassandra gave me her thoughts on what it’s like being a junior doing engineering. She said she wants to be challenged, and she is definitely getting her fair share. However, that is what drives her passion. “Engineering makes you want to do it and stick with it.” “Is it hard? Yes. Is it rewarding? Of course.” She said, what she looks forward to the most in the future is working with other disciplines, as bioengineering gives her quite an extensive knowledge in many different fields.
Now, what is it like doing engineering at FGCU? Well you get to choose between 4 disciplines: Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Bioengineering and Software Engineering. With these core courses, the university gives a close nurturing, in the respective fields with small classrooms and focused students like Cassandra, David and Jessica. The university employs talented staff to directly prepare you for employment, grad school, research, or even to start your own business.
