Hello! Welcome to my independent assignment page!

My name is Ryan Thurston and I am a freshman at NC State. I am currently interested in becoming a nuclear engineer. I chose this major because it includes three interests of mine: mathematics, physics, and engineering. Also, I believe nuclear engineers are great problem solvers, and I enjoy problem solving.


I previously held a position at Stabilus under the supervision of several engineers. While working at this company, I got to learn about hydro-pneumatic springs and their everyday applications. I also got to design and build a demonstration box that was used at trade shows to highlight the efficiency of the springs.
