Robby Renz enjoys the rush of a challenge. UAH senior mechanical engineering student has "always enjoyed building things and taking things apart," from Legos as a youngster to cars and electronic devices as a teenager. It wasn't only the dismantling and the reassembling of things that excited Renz - the why of how something worked sparked his imagination much more. "I have always enjoyed inventing products as well. I was originally interested in being an architect, which prompted me to do drafting in high school and college. I was not attracted to the low statistics of just being able to design modern type houses. This led me to a drafting job with a mechanical engineering consultant group in Huntsville. I immediately knew from the experience at that job, that this was what I wanted to do," Renz said.
