Although you may not yet know what you want to major in, which department or program at MIT appeals to you and why?
My dad used his Ph.D. in chemistry to help develop the McDonald’s coffee cup. Over time, I became fascinated with his experiments. Isotopes, oxidation, esterification; it was a world so unfamiliar yet so alluring. I had to explore more.
Similarly, I’m interested in applying my studies in ChemE to the work at MIT’s Office of Sustainability. Since taking a trip to Treehaven, a nature preserve in Wisconsin, I’ve felt drawn to working in environmentalism. Through opportunities like the Food and Sustainability Working Group and Envision Cambridge, I look forward to experiences that will shape my future in green chemistry. Published in
