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.

1. My short term goal is to get a 4.0 for this semester and also stay in shape at the same time. My long term goal includes getting a job in some decent sized company and then accumulating enough money until I would eventually be able to start a company of my own. I am now certain that my future will be in power systems and power market economics. 2. In complete honesty, I really don't care and I have no idea if the courses I chose actually helped me. I DO know that I like the idea of being an all-round indivual. I believe something like that really looks good on the resume. Not to mention the fact that I was able to pick up a second major that I actually enjoyed. I chose economics as the majority of my gen ed component because I am double majoring in econ. I find the subject fascinating and the math is easy which is a definite plus. I chose Hist 201 and Soc 331 because they are fairly easy subjects.
