My Classes


This is a list of the classes I have taken and a roadmap of the classes I plan to take to complete my BS in Mechanical Engineering and a Minor in Astronomy.  I intend to go on to graduate school, though I have not decided if I want to pursue a Master's or PhD. 


Coming in to college, I decided that I was here to learn, not to get a fabulous GPA.  There are just so many classes that I wanted to take, and learning is more important to me.  Thus, most of my quarters were jam-packed with classes, because majoring in engineering is hard enough, then add in a minor, and the occassional fun class like Organic Chemistry (yes, I literally took that for fun!).  As a result, I am very happy with my education experience, because I truly have learned an immense amount.
