"The Fulton Difference programs helped me customize my education by allowing me to focus on the things I am most interested in. The Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative (FURI) helped me delve deeper into a topic that interested me. Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) helped me apply what I had learned to the real world. Student organizations helped me become a leader. When the time came to get an internship, I was able to use all these experiences to show how I could be a great engineer.Arminta Claire Jordan 4+1 Graduate (BSE Mechanical Engineering, 2019/MS Mechanical Engineering, 2020) and current Equipment Engineer at Texas Instruments
