Hello, my name is Dakota Rufino.


College Major

I am a freshman at North Carolina State University. I am currently majoring in exploratory studies, however, my intended major is Mechanical engineering. In order to obtain a major in Mechanical engineering, I plan on applying for this major at this end of my freshman year. Once I finish the CODA process for the college of engineering, my major will officially become mechanical engineering.

My anticipated future

The reason I chose mechanical engineering was because I realized that it correlated to almost everything I am interested in. I have always had an affinity toward math and science, especially calculus and physics alongside my preference for building with my hands. I plan on using this degree to introduce, design, and construct new mechanisms and devices that utilize new technology to improve society.
