‘Rigorous’ Abington engineering program teaches skills that lead to … – Pennsylvania State University
Mukul Talaty, assistant professor of engineering and another of Denniss mentors, credits him for taking full advantage of all the Abington engineering program offers.
We provide students with a solid foundation in critical thinking, a structure for lots of practice in real-life problem-solving, and a hands-on introduction to the design process as well as less tangible things like how to work effectively in teams, how to self-assess andovercome deficits, time management, and knowing when to ask for help versus when to try to figure things out on your own, he said.
Talaty said Dennisis a great example of how dedication and perseverance lead to success.
Clifford grew by working hard, applying himself, sticking with it when things didn't go as he expected, and pushing himself to be better. He always had a great attitude, and Clifford wasn't afraid to reach out for help when he needed it, he said.
All of the engineering faculty, consider students to be like family we are always there if theyneed us, Talaty said.
Early on, Dennis settled on the same career choice as his dad, who is an engineer in India. Joining the robotics team at Philadelphias Central High School solidified his interest in STEM, and Abington was the only university he applied to for his bachelor's degree.
Abington is close to home, and I received a full scholarship. It was a great experience, and its a smaller campus so you can get more involved and get to know faculty, he said.
The Penn State Abington engineering program is accredited by ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology). The first two years focus on foundational engineering coursework, which can be completed at Abington or Penn State Brandywine. The next two years of advanced engineering coursework are completed at the modern, multimillion-dollarengineering facility at Penn State Great Valley.
Penn State Abington provides an affordable, accessible and high-impact education to its diverse student body. It is committed to student success through innovative approaches to 21st-century public higher education within a world-class research university. With more than 3,100 students, Penn State Abington is a residential campus that offers bachelors degrees in 25 majors, undergraduate research, the Schreyer Honors College, NCAA Division III athletics and more.
