Ricky Cates' Resume

picture of myself


I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's of Science in Mechanical Engineering at North Carolina State University. If everything goes as plan, I plan to graduate in May 2020.


I chose Mechanical Engineering for a number of reasons. Even as a little child, I was fascinated with putting things together and taking them apart. My favorite toys were legos and I even played with some extra spark plugs my dad had lying around. As I grew into later adolescence, I grew even more intrigued with how things are made, constantly watching shows like How It's Made. The fact that there are readily available and high paying jobs in this field was also pretty appealing.
