A mentor recently shared with me an interesting observation. On her visits to college campuses, she makes it a point to talk to students about why they chose engineering as a career field. The prevailing answer used to be, “I want to design and create amazing things.” Increasingly, the answer has become, “I want to change the world.”
This is exactly how I view my opportunity for impact. Every day at work, I use my computer engineering background to define next-generation silicon products used in communications networks – all of the “behind the scenes” infrastructure equipment that enables your cell phone, tablet, or computer to communicate. The work I do truly touches people around the world.
