Why UAH?

Growing up, one of my favorite hobbies was to design mechanical systems with Legos, duct tape, and cardboard. I love the "art" of engineering, as there are endless possibilities to what one can do. Getting to learn and understand why mechanical systems were created and how to improve their efficiency excited me. Mechanical engineering at UAH is definitely the best fit for me.

Favorite Thing About UAH

My favorite thing about UAH is how passionate the students are about the advancement of their knowledge. I also feel that I’m able to connect with more students due to UAH’s size compared to larger universities.

Most Memorable Class

My favorite class so far was definitely “Introduction to Machine Shop,” because I got to learn all about the manufacturing process. It really taught me to be more detail orientated and showed me the most efficient ways to approach prototyping and manufacturing. It is definitely the greatest elective class for my major.
