Shinder, Ida

Major: 
Chemical Engineering

What is the RISE area of interest during your first year and why?: 

The RISE area of interest during my first year is Entrepreneurship. I have an accounting and finance degree from the RObert H. Smith School of Business and I am really excited about combining what I know with what I want to learn.

What is the RISE area of interest during your second year and why?: 

During the second, my area of interest is research. My ultimate goal is to pursue this track as a career. Given my background in business, engineering is a completely new wayof thinking - and I believe that the research track would be best suited after I take a couple more engineering classes.

What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 

I am excited to be back at the University of Maryland and am looking forward to getting involved with engineering clubs and activities. In the meantime, I spend my free time volunteering at an animal shelter.

What is your cool engineering experience?: 

I am new to engineering and am looking forward to my first "cool" engineering experience.
