It is a very rewarding experience to give back to the students and the department. The is why this year I am assisting one team of students with their senior design project. I am excited the students will be able to leverage the industry perspective and experience that I bring to their Senior Design Projects, and carry that knowledge into their first jobs as Engineers. It is very clever of the faculty to align these Engineering Alumni events with the Senior Design Project presentations - it gives the student an audience of their peers to draw feedback from, and gives them a great opportunity to network with fellow alumni both in the area and abroad. Dr. Farahmand has done a wonderful job and I look forward to the future of the department, and of the Engineering community in Sonoma County.
