The opportunity provided by SUECE to participate in academic research starting early in my undergraduate studies provided the groundwork for success in graduate school.
It was the journey with my peers, not the destination, that kept me motivated to continue the grand adventure that is ECE.... but the destination is pretty sweet too.
The ECE department easily became my home during the time I spent there. I grew a close bond between all of my former classmates to whom I still keep in close contact with today. The professors truly care about you and your success when it comes to your future career and your education.
Being an ECE student at SU allowed me to experience many undergraduate research opportunities, practical and exciting Junior Lab projects and capstone projects, great options for extra-curricula, and the close-knit community between the professors and the students and between the students ourselves.
