Help create future technologies

Engineering is a rewarding field in applied science.

The study of science is an impartial study of the natural world around us. It consists of posing questions in the form of experiments to try to gain an understanding as to how the universe works.

In the process of probing nature for her secrets, humans have had to become more and more clever in how they pose such questions. It is no longer sufficient to measure the acceleration of gravity by dropping cannonballs; today's experiments are at the very pinnacle of technology and require specialized equipment from a multitude of disciplines to perform properly.

Most of this equipment is designed and built by engineers: people who apply the laws of physics and chemistry, not only to further the process of discovery, but to create the buildings, vehicles, and communications for humanity to perform at peak efficiency.

Description

The UFV Mechatronics program was the perfect way for me to gain the hands on skill necessary to handle the design and detail work necessary for engineering. The instructors of the program personally invested to encourage me in pushing myself to complete large projects and set ambitious goals, which prepared me for continuing into further education and research.
