Major, University, and Anticipated Graduation Date

I am in the process of completing a Bachelor's of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a minor on Motorsports
at North Carolina State University. I attended an Early College highschool and transfered in with 51 credit
hours; therefore, though my projected graduation date is May 2020, I may graduate before then.


Why I Chose My Major and What I Intend to do With That Degree

I chose Mechanical Engineering because I've always loved cars since I was a little kid. I knew I would want
to do something related to cars when I grew up. By pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering, I can directly impact what
happens in the automotive industry. I hope to someday design my own car engine that will be put on a production vehicle.
