Ava Tan, Cornell ECE Undergraduate, Class of 2016
I chose to be an ECE at Cornell because of the sheer breadth of the program. As an ECE, we get to learn about everything from the very transistors that make up circuits, to the very detailed internal workings of a computer and how it operates, to signal analysis and its applications in everyday communication. There's always so much to learn, and better yet, there's an unfathomably broader range of ways you can apply what you've learned for the real world.
Being an ECE at Cornell has been a wonderful experience! Outside of a challenging, yet eye-opening academic courseload, I've gotten the opportunity to work with professors on research and to help out with ECE courses as well. The best part by far, though, has to be my amazing hard-working peers and my professors who are so very dedicated to their work and their teaching.
