"I am pursuing a PhD in Biomedical or Chemical Engineering. My degree has prepared me by giving me a strong foundation in Math and Chemistry, as well as introduction to design and report writing. Additionally, the Honors College URS program has allowed me to conduct research in two diverse labs, learn to present my results to a variety of audiences, and gave me a strong foundation for graduate school. The Congressional internship also gave me a unique perspective on research and politics."

"From here, it's possible." To me, this is more than a slogan, receiving postdoc fellowship from Stanford University after graduation is beyond my wildest dream. As an international student with a different background, when I first set foot in America, I felt a little nervous and perplexed in the beginning. I even began questioning if coming to the US for higher education was a good idea facing all the new challenges and uncertainties. However, my doubts did not last long, and Texas Tech University has proved to be the right choice. With the help from the professors and fellow students, I was able to get settled in very quickly and get adapted to US classroom culture, which was quite different from where I came from. The inclusive classroom culture really helps me with my confidence and inspires the best out of me. From being quiet in the classroom, I was able to find my voice and dare to speak out after receiving positive feedbacks. During the process, my ability to think critically and independently was greatly improved, and my academic performance caught attention from several professors. Amazed by Dr. Sunanda Mitra's curiosity and passion for science at age of eighty, I decided to pursue a doctorate degree with her in neuroimaging data analysis. Besides, I was also impressed by the facility that we have access to (i.e. a 3T MRI scanner.) Throughout the years that I have pursued my degree, her mentorship helps me tremendously. She teaches me a lot about both research and life, more than I could ever credit her for. When I first started as a Ph.D. student, it did not take long for me to realize that the quality required to be a good student does not necessarily qualify someone as a good scientist. A scientist works at the edge of human knowledge, and seeks the unknown, which is what I am passionate about. The career-changing event for me is the neuroimaging symposium held by Texas Tech Neuroimaging Institute, which gathered top researchers from different institutes, namely Mind Research Network and National Institute of Mental health. I was able to get their attention with my ideas, and I had the privilege to intern with them later. To sum up, the multidisciplinary research environment, strong core curriculum in data analysis, and the knowledgeable faculty prepare me well for my future research endeavors at Stanford University."

"During my time at Texas Tech studying Industrial Engineering, I made it evident that having a true understanding of the course material and ability to apply it was more important than the letter grade. Therefore, I sought opportunities to keep applying the knowledge I gained in the classroom to the real-world applications. As an undergraduate, I worked for over a year in my professor's research lab. Through this position, I directly helped with experimental trials and assisted in the composition of academia regarding the research of metal powders that have been transformed into solid objects through the process of the three-dimensional printing technique known as Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENS). Furthermore, I also have had the opportunity to work on three different projects. The first of these projects was aiding a faculty member with the help of data collection and processing for the University Medicine Center (UMC). The goal of this project was to help reduce the lead time it took for the X-Ray Technicians to perform their job in the Emergency Department and send the x-rays to be processed. Statistical analysis techniques such as Pareto analysis and box plots were used to reach a conclusion. In addition to this project, I also helped to find an e-NABLE Community Chapter at Texas Tech. This chapter in partnership with the organization, e-NABLE, serves to fabricate three-dimensionally printed prosthesis for those in need of an upper limb assistive device. Lastly, my most recent project has been my senior design project. Along with two other team members, I have performed a 3 to the power of 3 Factorial Design of Experiments to investigate the optimal settings of a piece of new machinery for the US Department of Agriculture. From these projects and my IE courses, I was able to gain an overview of the concepts and critical role of Industrial Engineering. Additionally, Texas Tech made me a stronger and more capable engineer and person. Texas Tech created opportunities for me to succeed. My most recent instance of this is accepting a job post-grad. Upon graduation, I have accepted a position as a Plant Supervisor at the ScottsMiracle-Gro Jackson, GA plant. Upon acceptance of this position, I have thought about how I will add value to my plant and my company. Fortunately, Texas Tech provided me with many different skills and personal values from the projects and course curriculum I encountered. Thus, as I step into my new role as a Plant Supervisor for a major manufacturing plant, my goal is to simultaneously combine the experience I gain as Plant Supervisor with the material that I learned through Texas Tech to better enhance my professional knowledge, competence, skill, and overall effectiveness. Texas Tech provided me more than my dream career. It instilled in me an insatiable drive to want to see more, do more, and be more."

"I started at Texas Tech University in the Spring 2012 semester with the aim of obtaining a Master's degree in Petroleum Engineering. I chose to attend TTU because of its ranking as one of the top 10 graduate programs for Petroleum Engineering, and because of its proximity to the Permian Basin. The program gave me a broad perspective of the petroleum industry with courses that covered details of how oil and gas is formed and flows through the rocks and the engineering process of maximizing its production, all the way to it economic value and the maximization present value profits. All of this was made possible by the faculty and staff rich in experience and knowledge of the industry. The program's recent development of the Oilfield Technology Center (OTC) has made it possible to bring the oilfield experience into the classroom. The visualization of the complex process and facilities at the OTC has help facilitate learning and enabled student appreciate the concepts being though in class. The typical graduate from the program have gone on to work in some of the leading companies in the industry and employment success rate after the program is high. I will be graduating with my Ph.D. in Petroleum Production Operations this May 2018. TTU has developed my expertise in multiphase flow assurance, one of the key sectors of petroleum industry right now and in the near future. I am sure the future is bright and full of opportunities, and I am grateful to Texas Tech for making it possible from here. GUNS UP!"
