Robin Willick ’16
Tagliatela College of Engineering
I chose UNH because I was so impressed with all the programs they had here. I was introduced to systems engineering by Professor Montazer. It’s a sort of revamped and updated version of industrial engineering, with entrepreneurship and business skills mixed in. It was just a great fit.
Part of the reason I went into engineering was because, at the same time that I loved math and science, I also loved giving back to the community. So while I wanted to pursue subjects that I loved, I also wanted to help people.
I’m one of the students serving on the committee that’s thinking through the proposed Innovation Center building. Why me? Well, for my honors thesis, I‘m working on a system engineering design approach to a “maker space” or “innovation space.” That’s pretty relevant!
I wouldn’t be here without the scholarship help I’ve received. I’m very grateful that everybody has believed in me enough to help with my education. And I’m hoping that I’ll be in a position to give back to the school sometime soon.
