The University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering provided me with invaluable experience as an undergraduate through the cooperative engineering program. Because of its extensive industry network, I was able to pursue opportunities at major U.S. corporations, where I worked hands-on with advanced technologies and systems.
When I decided to pursue a master's degree in electric power and energy, after learning about the advances and opportunities within these fields, I readily chose Pitt, as the university and the region as a whole have become national leaders in research and education in these areas.
