Germany or Bust!

My name is Eric Sherbocker and I am currently a freshman in the Swanson School of Engineering here at the University of Pittsburgh. I am a mechanical engineering major with interests in the fields of aerospace and space exploration. I am originally from New Cumberland, Pennsylvania, right outside of the state capital. I currently have my black belt in the martial arts style of Jung Sim Do, and in high school I swam and played volleyball. I am a big fan of music, both playing and listening, and myself play the viola, guitar and ukulele.

I am incredibly excited to have this opportunity to go to Germany! I am very much looking forward to getting an inside look at the manufacturing processes used by German companies. I find it fascinating how far advanced Germany is in its integration of automated manufacturing and its use of autonomous robots. Additionally, I have never been out of the country for any extended period and thus am thrilled to have the chance to experience and gain an understanding of German culture. I believe this will be a truly humbling experience and will help broaden my understanding of the world. Germany or bust!
