Physics major, mathematics minor
Ph.D. Student, University of Illinois at Chicago
“I want to build spaceships.” It was clear from her arrival at Hartwick that Eileen knew exactly what she wanted to do -aerospace engineering. A physics degree is the best path forward in this direction, and that is exactly what Eileen did, culminating in a very exciting hands-on senior project, building a pulse jet engine. She also had several interesting internships along the way at GE and at NASA. Eileen took advantage of Hartwick’s 3-2 pre-engineering program with Clarkson University and earned two bachelor degrees (physics from Hartwick and aeronautical engineering from Clarkson) in 5 years.
Physics major, mathematics and philosophy minors
Ph.D. Student, Baylor College of Medicine
“I am currently a fifth year Ph.D. student in neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine. I was a physics major, and mathematics and philosophy minor. The physics and math courses have been invaluable for providing the computational skills I use daily. I took a couple of other courses such as Biological Psychiatry and Molecular Biology of the Cell that had a lot of overlap with some of my graduate level courses.”
