“I enjoyed the hands-on experience the most. My machining classes were a fun challenge. Each machining class taught me how to use the equipment available to engineers, and it reminded me of working with my dad on our DIY projects. As a bonus, I was allowed to keep my project at the end of each semester. ”— Stephanie Broxton, '23
