Sid Collins' Personal Website

My Major

My name is Sid Collins, and I am a first year engineering student here at NC State. My intended major is mechanical engineering, and I anticipate on CODAing into the MAE department by the end of the year. I chose NCSU because of their amazing engineering program and the vast number of opportunities that come with an education from the university. With the engineering career fair, research opportunities and a plethora of employers eagerly wanting your work. My graduation date will likely be later than the usual four years. I intend to take a year to complete a coop and if at all possible, I will extend my education by an additional year as to receive my master's degree. Therefore, I intend to graduate in May of 2022.

Why, and Where I'm Going

I chose this degree because I love to make, create and design, and hope to use these skills to bring the future into the present. After I obtain my master's degree, my top company to work for would be NASA. The idea of pushing the boundaries of human limitation and exploring our solar neighborhood is mindblowing to me. Other companies include Tesla Motors, Boeing, SpaceX etc. In all honesty, I will be happy wherever I can go and affect a positive difference in the world nd the people living within it.
