Campus: Old Westbury Major: Mechanical Engineering, B.S.
Member: Men's Soccer
I took a ride around Manhattan with my physics professor in a twin engine airplane. I also enjoy surfing!
I decided to complete my education at NYIT because of the mechanical engineering program and the opportunity to participate on the Men’s Soccer Team. I transferred from a school that had a large engineering department. At NYIT, I am able to develop relationships with professors and learn more from them because of smaller classes.
Favorite NYIT Experience:
Competing at the NCAA Men’s Soccer National Championships twice! During my first year at NYIT, we won the ECC championship. It was a great experience right away in my first semester.
The Bears Connection
I love being part of the Men's Soccer Team, which is made up of people from all over America and the world. I am able to share moments with people from different backgrounds. Living in New York, one of the most diverse places in the world, has had a big impact on me. I thought I already knew English, but when I came to NYIT, it was very challenging. My professors and teammates have helped me improve my English skills.
I want to work in the field of energy production. My undergraduate education in mechanical engineering is giving me the skills needed to begin a master's program in energy management at NYIT. Studying in the U.S. gives me a competitive edge to pursue a professional career anywhere in the world.
