It's been a little while since my last post. I have stepped away from blogging for a bit, but I think I'm ready to get back to it. Things have certainly changed a bit, here is a summary of what has happened in the past 7 months.
I finished up my bachelor's degree in plastics engineering. I was offered a fantastic position as a research assistant. I stopped searching for industry positions. I applied for graduate school at UMass Lowell. I was accepted into the PhD program in plastics engineering. I extended my co-op over the summer. Came back to school, I am only taking 3 classes per semester now. Now, I am getting into the home stretch of my first semester in grad school.
I am really excited about my research; I am working on a multivariate in mold sensor for injection molding. I will explain my project in more detail in the future. Being a research assistant is the best job I have had to this date. It is like taking school and work and mashing them into one.
I am really excited that winter is right around the corner, I can't wait to get out snowboarding! I am currently looking into classes for next semester and internships for the summer, so things are looking pretty promising so far.
Look forward to more posts in the future!
