Pedowitz, Michael

Major: 
Electrical Engineering

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

The instruction area is my interest in the first year. This is because I enjoy helping people understand material. I also want to get better at organizing my thoughts so I can explain things to large groups which would be eventual outcome of teaching.

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

My area of interest is research because I want to get an exposure to engineering research in undergraduate. I would also like to do it to potentially prepare for graduate school which is an option was considering.

What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 
  • I am a UTF for ENEE 205
  • I am the treasurer and webmaster for the Engineering Student Council
What is your cool engineering experience?: 

My cool engineering experience was over the summer where I worked at Sigma space, which develops LIDAR. In this position I was able to rum simple tests on the lasers and the instruments for calibration. Running the whole system and even having to ware laser safety glasses was quite cool the whole time and it was a good engineering experience.
