My name is Darren McCaughan. Welcome to my page.

Educational Information

I am currently a student at North Carolina State University. I am studying to become a mechanical engineer. I am currently a freshman so my intended graduation year is 2020. However, I have been looking into the coop program and if I do decide to be engaged in that program, that could delay my graduation by a year.

Why Mechanical Engineering

I have always been interested in engineering since I was younger due to my interest in building things and how things work. Growing up math and sciences have always came fairly naturally to me and I was interested so this reinforced that for me. However, I did not know which engineering I would specfically be interested in so Mechanical engineering allows me to study and become and engineering without narrowing my choices for what I can do. Since this is the reason I chose mechanical, I am not entirely sure what I would like to do after I graduate, but I do know I would like to work with my hands and work on physical things I can touch and see.
