Student Objective
Student Objective Questions:
1. Reflect: What are your short/long term goals (academic, career, & personal)? You may include your ideal career in engineering or your preferred working environment. 2. As you choose your General Education courses (to satisfy your degree requirements), please describe how the courses will help you to develop as a professional engineer. You may highlight skills and knowledge as listed in the University Catalog course descriptions.

In reflection, I have created several goals for myself. In the short term my clear goal is to graduate. The number one goal right now it graduating. After graduation, is employment, where I work for a company that deals with embedded systems. Working for this company will build my technical skills as well as my experience as a whole. Long term goals would be to learn as much as I can, where ever I work. Then possibly return to academia as an instructor. In the selection of my General Education courses, I tried to select course that would diversify as well as broaden my skills with its course material. I took classes in Economics, Phycology, as well as History. These types of courses are all well rounded courses with very applicable material to an Engineering major. Basic economics is always good to know when heading out into the real world. The understanding of market trends as well and the ideal of consumer verses producer are always very important for engineers. Phycology is a very good, very basic class that allows the student to step away from the technical classes and solve problems not with numbers, but with reasoning. History courses are always important to any major, because if you dont understand history, you are doomed to repeat it.
