“Every day holds a new challenge in design work and a fast-paced schedule. This requires me to take a hands-on approach to engineering. … Developing the system to pilot the world’s largest plane is no easy task, and can only be done with a great group of dedicated engineers and technicians. We take an interdisciplinary, hands-on approach to design in order to develop creative solutions.”

– Stuart Yun BS'13 (mechanical engineering), working at Scaled Composites with a team building the world’s largest aircraft

“I really like encouraging young women to at least think about STEM careers. A lot of girls don’t know what an engineer does. I want them to know that, ‘Hey, women can do this. And you can be really good at it.’”

– Katie Pier BSEE’09, MSEE’10, applications engineer at Texas Instruments
