Today, we speak to senior Civil Engineering major Liam Cutri-French from Glen Gardner, NJ (Hunterdon County). He tells us more about his time at Rowan and provides some advice for incoming students.
Could you please share your favorite moment with a faculty member or a favorite experience in one of your classes?
My favorite moment from a class was freshman engineering clinic, where I had to trade up from a paperclip to a backpack.
Could you please share your favorite social memory?
My favorite memory from Rowan was probably my time spent in the Holly Pointe. I was able to meet so many great friends while working together to pass freshman year courses.
What are your career aspirations?
I plan on attaining my M.S. in Engineering and Public Policy, and after that I hope to work on designing major infrastructure projects with a focus on how infrastructure impacts the public.
How did the people or programs at Rowan help to support you with your professional growth or career aspirations?
My work with interdisciplinary courses as well as extracurriculars helped me to grow as an engineer. I was able to gain valuable project management skills through Engineers Without Borders. I was also able to learn about the intersection of engineering and policy while working as the AVP of Facilities and Operations for SGA.
Do you want to give a thank you shout out to your family, friends, advisors or mentors?
I would like to give a shoutout to my roommates Augie Scorzo, Sam Mardini, Chris Contos and Matt Cangemi for always helping me be the best student I could be.
Who is your favorite professor? What class did you take them for? And why is this person your favorite?
My favorite professor is Dr. Jagadish Torlapati, who was my advisor for the Engineers Without Borders Clinic. Dr. Torlapati was extremely helpful for us to complete our projects and has been an excellent mentor.
What advice would you give to incoming freshmen or transfers about making the most out of their college experience?
I would recommend that freshmen and transfers should get involved as quickly as possible. Don’t turn down any opportunity, as you never know where it could lead you.
