Student Name: Cory Philippe

Cohort: Fall 2018

Hometown: Elizabeth NJ

Major: Mechanical Engineering

I became interested in mechanical engineering and the aerospace industry in high school. I’m interested in pursuing research related to engineering to improve my technical skills and increase my understanding of the field. By doing research with a faculty member, I hope to learn useful skills that can help me later in my career and that are not explicitly taught in my regular classes. After Stevens I hope to pursue a master’s degree in aerospace engineering and doctoral studies in physics or another science. When I start working, I want to pursue a career at NASA or another aerospace organization such as Boeing, SpaceX, or Lockheed Martin. Here at Stevens, I am a member of the varsity cross country and track and field team, and am interested in student organizations such as Engineers Without Borders and Habitat for Humanity.
