Parth Kathrotiya
Major: 
Mechanical Engineering

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

My RISE area of interest during my first year is research because it is the basis of learning more about the environment we live in. It allows us to better engineer procedures and products, which can help people in many ways.

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

Still not sure what my second area of interest will be.

What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 

I am currently the Junior Vice President of the Mechanical Engineering Honors Society (Pi Tau Sigma). I am also a member of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

What is your cool engineering experience?: 

I was able to use the skills I learned in class in real world applications, while interning at Material Science Lab at National Aeronautics and Space Administration. I worked to provide analysis and solve problems with 3D composite joints in launch vehicles.
