My name is Eduard Drachuk and I am a sophomore student at NC State majoring in Civil Engineering and hoping to graduate in 2020. There are a few reasons I chose this major. I always loved building something, large or small, and thinking about the design of it in the process. As an engineer, I want to build houses as North Carolina is growing fast and more and more people are moving here increasing the demand for quality housing. When working, I want my job to be more than just being inside at the desk all day. In this profession I will be able to spend time on site, working and monitoring the situation.

My current job is the one I did not expect to have this year, as I left my previous position in June to be a full time student. However, I was also looking for summer internship positions at the time and late August I got a call from one of the companies that I visited saying they need someone for entry level engineering position. This is a great opportunity for me to get experience so I agreed to work about 10 hours a week. So now, I am getting training to be a Concrete testing field technician and Erosion control field technician with this company.
