Engineering Education isn’t the first thing most students think about when applying to engineering school. This major is still somewhat niche, so we thought it would be interesting if students wanted to share how they got interested in engineering education as a discipline. Find Rohit Kandakatla’s story below.

At this year’s Engineering Week, the University of Central Florida’s College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) went all out. More than 20 organizations held college-wide engineering events, including Rube Goldberg competitions and multi-cultural formals. They played host to industry luminary Microsoft, which presented design and building competitions. In the coup de grâce, they attempted to break the world record for the longest high-five chain in conjunction with UCF CECS’ Limbitless Solutions team, which makes 3D printed prostheses for children. All of this was organized by the UCF ASEE Student Chapter.
