Class of 2024

Megan became an EA because she wanted to help inspire younger students to be creative and teach skills that can be applied to solve real-world problems. "I wanted to be part of a group that worked internally in our department and externally with our community." Megan chose JMU Engineering because it's very open-ended and project-oriented. "I had no idea which engineering discipline I wanted to study, but JMU allowed me to create my own path. As a result, I had an opportunity to experiment with multiple disciplines and learn how to problem-solve from day one." Megan is also involved in Women in Technology, Community Service Learning, and Big Brothers Big Sisters. She is also a Trip Leader and a CISE Mentor.

How is JMU Engineering preparing you for your future?

"JMU Engineering allows me to develop soft and hard skills for my future career. I also have the opportunity to work with real stakeholders like Northrop Grumman." 

Advice for prospective students:

"Find what you love doing and run with it. This is your future, and it's what you make of it."
