My GLUE Experience

By Miriam Laleye, Sophomore Aerospace Engineering Student


When I decided to apply for the Graduates Linked with Undergraduates in Engineering (GLUE) Program, at first it was to learn more about the scope of my major, Aerospace Engineering. I chose my major because I developed a high interest in aircrafts when I was in high school; however, I never had the opportunity to compare my expectations with the reality of the field. I hoped that the GLUE experience would grant me the opportunity to learn more about my major, and be able to judge whether or not it was actually what I thought, what I wanted, and what was best for me. I also believed that experiencing research at this early stage of my studies would help me to know better how I felt about research and about graduate school. In sum, I hoped that at the end of this experience in the GLUE program, I would be more knowledgeable about my career goals. At the end of the course, I could definitely say that my expectations were met.
