Sokngim Kim is on the path to becoming the first woman engineer in her home country of Cambodia who was educated in the U.S. She plans to return to Cambodia to improve its infrastructure and boost its economy.
''Being in a classroom full of students is an exciting experience. Specifically, I enjoy teaching 'Introduction to Civil Engineering'. This is the students’ first connection with the civil engineering program. We talk about solving problems of urbanization, civil engineering innovations, and engineering failures, and we even build bridges out of spaghetti and glue. Seeing them connect with their degree program and become engaged is a rewarding experience.''
I want to be a part of the technological revolution and contribute to build an operating interface between science and society for optimal use of resources, environment protection, and indeed, to shape our future.
Mechanical engineering is an important job in today’s world because; they can do various jobs ranging from manufacturing systems, physical science, to working on power systems.
Education Needed In order to get the education needed to become a mechanical engineer you would have to master the following four major subjects: Math, English, Physics, and Chemistry....
"The law school application process for me, was difficult but very manageable. I self-studied and took the LSAT twice. Both times, I achieved a great score. Studying for the LSAT was very time-consuming, but I knew that I would have to make sacrifices if I wanted to do well on the test. From there, applying and trying to find the right school was much easier, especially with the help of the Pre-Law Program at UGA which steered me in the right direction. Ms. Clutter helped me to not only figure out how to choose the best applicant schools, but she also made recommendations and critiques of my personal statement. With the awesome support of the UGA advisors, faculty, family and friends, the long and difficult process of applying to law schools ended with me making the decision to attend Duke University for law school."
''It is a rare individual who does not enjoy some type of music. It is fascinating to re-create a piece of music from the written score–there are many physical and technical decisions to be made, but that is just to give one the tools to be artistically expressive in a unique way. I want my students to emerge from my studio not only with greater musical capabilities, but more awareness about how to succeed in anything they undertake and an overall confidence and joy in whatever they do. We work hard, but we also have a lot of laughs.''
''So often students have had negative experiences with mathematics in their past schooling, but by learning why certain things work the way they do in math, many students have a complete change of attitude. I strive to create a classroom environment that is challenging and nurturing because I want students to learn to articulate what they think about a topic, why they think this, what others (peers and scholars) think about the same topic and why, and the similarities and points of departure between their views and the views of others. In other words, I want students to have informed ideas to take with them and know how to refine and evaluate those ideas.''
Charles Bullock, Professor of Political Science in the School of Public and International Affairs, wants his students to be politically active all their lives.
''Everyone has worked for a good boss and a bad boss and had jobs they liked and disliked. Organizational behavior explains these differences, which have a huge impact on how well people perform their jobs and how long they want to stay with their employer. When my students leave my course and return to the working world, I want them to see the value in supplementing their experience and intuition with science-based wisdom.''
The Bachelor of Landscape Architecture at UGA is a professional degree from one of the top-ranked programs in the nation. Course work combines creativity, art, science, engineering, and responsibility across several areas of study including design, historic preservation, planning, grading and drainage, horticulture, ecology, and sustainability. A required internship, service learning opportunities, design charrettes, and study abroad trips supplement student learning with real-world experience to build the most current knowledge and technical skills.
''The one UGA experience I will always remember will be my experience in Ethiopia. My yearlong adventures lent me a new perspective on life and on the world in general. My experience abroad also helped solidify my professional and personal goals. I now know that I want to dedicate my life to public service as an agent for change. I will forever be indebted to UGA, the Honors program, and the National Security Education Program for facilitating and supporting this experience.''
Jeffrey Berejikian, Professor of International Affairs, wants students to understand the role that effective foreign policy can play in resolving contemporary global problems.
