03 | Engineering School Offers Intense, Intimate Program
“Because the engineering and computer science program is so small, I can network with students who have the same ambition as mine,” says future civil engineer Oscar Ramirez. “Thanks to the program’s Center of Academic Support in Engineering and Computer Science, I can complete my school work at any time. With a night owl pass, I can enter the center 24 hours a day.”
He especially likes the program’s group projects because the skills involved, including managing people and meeting deadlines, will be useful in his career. He also appreciates the leadership skills he’s learned as an officer in the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers.
“The program does take a lot of time, but I don’t mind because after graduating I’ll be doing what I always wanted to do, which is building structures from scratch.”
