E & C Goals

My life-long career goal is to indulge in becoming an aerospace engineer, someone who is proficient in designing aircrafts, spacecrafts, satellites, and missiles, while also testing the prototypes I design. Even though my educational goal is directed at being an aerospace engineer, I also aspire for a career in interdisciplinary sciences, mostly artificial intelligence. I plan to acquire a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering, and then return for a bachelor’s in artificial intelligence. I might even use my Ph.D. to work for a federal space program. I believe it would be a very worthwhile experience and help me to expand my horizons, allowing me to not be limited to only one career path.

I chose artificial intelligence, because it deals with multidisciplinary projects in areas such as human-computer interaction, virtual reality, or robotics. This career path uses these areas to develop products to better advance the technology that we know of now, for example, Siri on the iPhone. Artificial Intelligence will be a great influence in the near future on things we use everyday like microwaves, garages, and even our houses themselves.

I chose aerospace engineering because I always wanted to be apart of the vast and infinite black void that is space. By utilizing this field of study, I can have a part of me suspended above this world; collecting data and sending it back to help us decipher the ever-growing mysteries of space. In this profession, I don’t have to sit in a cubicle all day; instead I can have the chance to put my mind to good use. Aerospace engineers typically operate and maintain equipment used in developing, testing, and producing new aircrafts and spacecrafts.
