My name is Philip Drummond, I am not in an official year since I am currently a non-degree studies student, and I do not have a major since I am just taking pre-requisite courses in order to apply to the College of Engineering this Fall. I am not yet fully decided as to which discipline I would like to major in, but I am leaning towards mechanical and/or electrical engineering. Engineering was my "hindsight" career for the last several years, meaning if I was to go back in time and go through college all over again, I would like to pursue engineering. I know at the time I was not mature enough to succeed in such a demanding major like engineering, so I went with my passion at the time, Biology. I have always had a strong desire to know how things function, and I was the one in my various jobs that figured out how to fix, design new, and maintain equipment, so engineering was always in the back of my mind.

I recently moved back to North Carolina, and prior to moving, I was a full-time community college Biology Professor in Nebraska for six years. During my tenure, I taught General Biology, Microbiology (which was my specialty), Pathology, and General Chemistry. Like just about all engineering students, I would love to get my degree, maybe get another Master's, and work for some exceptional company, making super cool things that will both be useful and helpful to people. I do know, however, that any job I have will ultimately include loads of boring, monotonous, paperwork, which the brochures never seem to include (it's all lasers and robots).

The most interesting classes I have taken include

  1. General Microbiology
  2. Biochemistry
  3. Plant Physiology
  4. Biostatistics
