Bioengineering

What do you like most about Berkeley Engineering?
I really like the high level of engagement with industry. Engineering career fairs and industrial info-sessions give you the opportunity to explore applications for the various skills you gain at Berkeley. Hearing and watching how enthusiastic employers are while seeking Berkeley engineers makes me feel confident about career explorations. All in all, I love how well Berkeley is able to connect academia with other careers.

What are you working on?
Shamn SinghShamn Singh (Photo by Preston Davis)I’ve been involved in research regarding brain tumors in Professor Sanjay Kumar's lab. Specifically, I analyze tumor behavior inside various synthetic polymers. It has been a great experience, especially because I’ve been able to apply the skills I’ve learned in classrooms to a real-world project.

What else do you do?
Outside of research, I’m also involved in tutoring. I led a math study group for the Bioengineering Honor Society (BioEHS) in my junior year.

What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about teaching. I love being able to communicate material I’ve learned with others. I consider tutoring as a challenge to myself — by attempting to teach the subject, I can judge how well I’ve learned the material.

What are your future plans?
I’ll be pursuing a medical education. I’m extremely interested in radiology.
