THIS WEEK’S ON CAMPUS OPINION (OCO)

Question: What's your favorite part of your major?


Karen Ty

Computer Science | 3rd Year

I like that [Computer Science] is challenging. Right now, specifically learning discrete math induction and strong induction.


Kirby Romeus

Mechanical Engineering | 3rd Year

My favorite part is that [Mechanical Engineering] tests my critical thinking skills. My favorite class that I've taken so far is FED101. That was fun! It was a creativity type of class. We got to design stuff and it seems most similar to the stuff I'll be doing in the real world. In the actual field, my favorite thing is cars. That's why I chose this major. I could work on any aspect of the engine, forming panels for the body, or working on components of the motor.


Dana Channaoui

Civil Engineering | 4thYear

My favorite part of [Civil Engineering] is the atmosphere. Everyone is there to better and support each other. You're never lonely. I like civil because I'll be outside, on the field, seeing the designs coming to life, testing things on site. I also like that it's a very broad field. It can go into environmental or structural. There's a lot of opportunities.


Camila Sierra-Gutierrez

Biomedical Engineering | First Year

What I like about BME is that it's kinda like becoming a doctor, but not necessarily becoming a doctor. All the things that I'm learning about will help hospitals and the medical industry. So whatever I do will benefits the lives of patients and that, for me, is the greatest feeling in the world. I actually did research here two years ago when I was in high school and I did cell-tissue engineering. I loved it so much!
