Learning to 3D print molecules! #ncsumakes
For some reason, when people ask engineers why they choose to study engineering, they reply with one of the answers:

1. I like to build things.
2. I like to solve problems.
3. I played with LEGOs as a kid!

Looking at these Senior Design Day projects got me thinking: "why did I decide to study engineering?" I don't know the answer to that really, but I'm grateful for the knowledge, skills, and friends I have gained in doing so.

It's time to focus not on WHY I chose to study engineering, but HOW I can apply my knowledge and skills to future endeavors.

Have you ever heard of the Engineering Design Cycle? Well, it's being heavily implemented by teams in Make-A-Thon this weekend. We thought we found our idea last night, but we've botched it for something more sustainable.
