Hi everyone! My name is Megan Black and I am extremely excited to travel to Germany in a few short weeks! My hometown is McMurray, PA, which is about 30 minutes South of Pittsburgh. I am a freshman in the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering majoring in Mechanical Engineering. Additionally, I am pursuing a minor in Industrial Engineering and a Certificate in Innovation, Product Design, and Entrepreneurship.
One of the reasons I want to participate in the Plus3 Germany program is because both Business and Engineering students learn about the automobile industry in Germany. It is important for an engineer to gain business skills and understand how business operates. Additionally, I am interested in seeing firsthand the applications of what I am learning in my classes.
