talks about ECE @ Maryland:
"As an applicant, I knew that the University of Maryland is a prestigious school and that the Electrical Engineering program is always ranked in the top twenty in the country. The university is also one of the fastest growing schools in the country.
The student body in ECE department is very diverse and interesting. It is like a miniature version of the world. You can meet all kinds of people from all over the globe with distinctive cultural and ethnic backgrounds. The students are also quite well rounded and talented.
Most of the professors are very nice and easy to approach. They are also pioneers in their respective research fields. The atmosphere is quite stimulating, in terms of intellectual challenges and positive influences from peer students. It encourages learning and always offers endless opportunities to students.
When I had free time as a student, I enjoyed light workouts, playing badminton and table tennis, swimming, playing computer games, reading books, and creative writing. Every once in a while, I also liked to go out for picnic and fly a kite.
The ECE program definitely laid an extremely strong foundation and prepared me well for future studies. Eventually, I want to become a successful entrepreneur in an engineering related field. My company will help promote engineering and technology that will help advance our world. I also hope I will be able to donate scholarships to talented students one day to give back to society."
