When Tyler isn’t working in the lab or the classroom, he participates in Tau Beta Pi, the national engineering honor society, helping with recruitment of new members. He also assists the CEAS Tribunal with events such as the career fair. “Going to college is not all about your studies –that is important, but it’s also important to spend time with your friends and have a lot of fun,” he said.
Tyler was recently able to blend these two concepts by taking an honors seminar called the Roman Experience. “In class we learned about various arts and music in Italy and at the end of the class we went to Rome for a week,” he said. “I was able to visit the Sistine Chapel and the Colosseum – It was really great.”
Tyler is considering pursuing a PhD after graduation, but his future is not set in stone. “I would also like to look for jobs, and although I’m not entirely sure which companies yet, I would like to work in the controls field.”
