Arts & Engineering
Be the Best of Both Worlds
Not everyone thinks like an engineer. Learning to work with people from other disciplines can make you a better communicator, decision maker and critical thinker. Experiences that combine Engineering and the Arts bring a new dimension to your studies and set you up for success in the workplace and in society.
My experiential learning communities inside and outside the country have made me a more confident, compassionate, and culturally-aware engineer.Shadae Boakye-Yiadom
