1. What did you study within the department of ECE?

I majored in Electrical Engineering with a focus on Microelectronics and a minor in Nanoscience.


2. What was the most valuable thing you gained from obtaining your degree from the ECE department at UTD?

It would have to be the collaborative teamwork skills during major projects.


3. Where do you currently work, what are your responsibilities, and how do you believe the Department of ECE and your specific area of study prepared you?

I work as a research assistant at UTD in the Materials Science & Engineering department towards a Ph.D. degree. The department prepared me by instilling me with hands-on lab work early on, which allowed me to use my critical thinking and problem solving skills that are essential for a successful graduate student in a research lab.


4. Are you proud to be an alumni of the ECE Department? If so, why?

I am very proud because more and more I hear that the ECE department at UTD is being recognized not only nationally but globally as well for its high achieving graduates.


5. What advice would you give to current students looking to go down a similar path?

There are dozens of specializations within the ECE department, so take every opportunity to find your passion and expertise.
