From Thomas Livesay, our 2017 CT-STEM summer scholarship recipient.
Through my participation in the UConn Explore Engineering Summer Program, I expanded my understanding of the different fields of engineering. These include mechanical, material, environmental, civil, biomedical, chemical, electrical, and computer engineering. This program provided me with the opportunity to learn much more as I met and heard from many different professors at UConn. Also, in the week I spent as a resident student, I learned about campus life both from living in dorms and from talking with the undergraduate students who assisted us throughout the day. This program helped me to confirm and expand my interest in engineering, making it a very valuable experience for me. I am very grateful to receive the CT STEM Foundation’s summer scholarship.
