You’re studying engineering–whether mechanical, biomedical, civil, chemical…the answer to that question has endless possibilities.  

Did you know that Roush Fenway Racing’s NASCAR driver, Ryan Newman, graduated from Purdue University with a degree in mechanical engineering?  While it wasn’t a direct line to his dream of becoming a race car driver, he is quoted in a Purdue College of Engineering News article “Educated racer” as saying, “Because of my schooling, I have a common language with the engineers on my team. We understand each other. So when we go to make a change on the race car, we are more likely to do it the right way the first time, and that definitely helps the entire team.”

A Devil's Perspective

Hey Duke Students! Today, is a really exciting day for me. Not too long ago, I was feeling overwhelmed by the pressure of finding an internship in my small hometown, in order to eliminate the cost of living elsewhere. I felt forced to live at home and find work experience close by in order to eliminate extra living costs.
