“Engineering is a great profession. The decisions you make today last a lifetime and the results are passed down through future generations. Every decision you make affects a community’s livelihood. A quote that always sticks with me is ‘make sure the decisions you make today outlive you.’ It brings the utmost satisfaction knowing you make a community better by just performing engineering. No other profession allows you to visibly see results unfold from paper to concrete and provide jobs and welfare to a community.”
