Energy Systems Engineering, 1T2+PEY
Since her graduation from EngSci, Jing Ge has gone to Cornell University to pursue a degree in Master of Science on an interdisciplinary topic to understand human aspects of sustainability. (“Oh yeah – from pure engineering aspects of sustainability to social science and psychology!”) She has also started an NGO with a Cornell Professor to work on international green building exchange. Jing shares that EngSci has really prepared her, in ways which she hadn’t originally anticipated, such as being able to squeeze many things into a short time frame. While her other classmates are taking classes to simply fill requirements, Jing is pursuing fun courses to explore her interests. She says that in one semester she took nine classes (including caving), while other students can normally handle only three or four.
Jing provides her sentiments on EngSci and how it has remained with her since graduation:
“I really appreciate the education I received in EngSci. I was in the Energy Option and the level and breath of the material covered constantly impresses my professors and classmates. The education really readied me to pursue the next venture. My classmates in EngSci are the smartest peers I have ever had. Even after going to top American schools (including me and my friends), we have all really missed the intellectual atmosphere in EngSci. Most importantly, my friends in EngSci are my lifelong friends and we have had a reunion trip every year since we have graduated. This year, we are going to Alaska. Also, this year, I am getting married to an EngSci!”
