Engineering that helps people
"I knew that I wanted to help people, as a lot of engineers do. And it’s just a really great way to apply those skills directly to people’s lives—with clean water, the environment, and sustainability. [...] A lot of the classes that we end up taking are very focused on the real world and real problems that have happened."
—Samantha Volkmeier, Environmental Engineering
