Griffin R. Ray's Credentials



Senior Picture

Education

Currently, I am working towards my Bachelors of Mechanical Engineering with the 2+2 Engineering program offered by NC State University at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I do plan on going after my Masters in Mechanical Engineering after a few years of expirience. I am expected to graduate in May of 2019.

Professional Aspirations

As a young child, two things that I loved to do was build and work out puzzles, which lead me down the road of becoming an Engineer after I found out how easily mathematics came to me. As an Engineer, I feel that I can make a difference in the automotive feild so that we can wayne ourselves off of oil. I plan on working on making engines far more efficient when burning fuel and by incorporating better hybrid technoligies for propultion. The increase in gas mileage will help as our supply of oil constantly runs lower and lower over the next few decades to a century, while also decreasing the carbon footprint we leave each day as we drive to make the earth a more habitable place for our children, grandchildren, and their children.
