NC State is a great university to pursue your career. There are numerous opportunities here to explore and sky is the limit if you decide to. The staff is very supportive and considerate. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at NC State and would highly recommend everyone to be a part of such a big Wolfpack community! This has become my second home and it is really very hard to leave this place after creating such beautiful memories.

A good academic background and the best Wolfpack family.

What are your plans post graduation?

I will be joining Amphenol Antenna Solutions as an RF Engineer for July 2021.

I would say just enjoy the process and participate in all the activities NC State offers as much as you can.
