talks about ECE @ Maryland:
"I went to high school in Howard County, Maryland, where I played varsity basketball and soccer. I graduated third in my class and was fairly sure that I would go into engineering after graduating, due to my interest and capability in physics, math, and problem solving.
I was first interested in Maryland's ECE program because the department is well regarded across the U.S., and the university tuition was most reasonable.
The coursework within the department is not easy, but with that, there is a great feeling of accomplishment. As a graduating senior, I knew that I had accomplished an incredible amount in my years in the ECE program. This is not evident just in the numerous job interview opportunities and several job offer I received, but it is also evident to me personally. The Department pushed me to reach my potential and allowed me to learn a great deal about the field of Electrical Engineering.
The interviewing process for an ECE major is a great adventure that can take you anywhere in the US on the company dollar, to experience a variety of different job opportunities. With the hard work of completing this degree, the doors are opened to send you into whatever industry, and whatever area geographically you'd like to go to.
Outside of the classroom, I was a member of the crew team for 2.5 years until I decided to put my academics and career first in my senior year. I enjoyed making many friends both inside and outside the ECE program, participating in intramural sports, and being an avid Terps fan. I also interned with NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center on the Solar Dynamics Observatory Project for 3 summers.
After graduating, I started work within the Space Department of the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. I have both the faculty and staff of the Department to thank for all of their knowledge and support along the way, which has allowed me to find a job which I am passionate about after college."
