For a long time, my only exposure to any creative field was through drawing and painting. However when I began involving myself heavily in robotics, I began to take interest in design, technology, and more importantly, what I could accomplish with experience in both.
Interdisciplinary at its core, design requires fresh ways of thinking and new methodologies. The future of technology itself is determined not just by scientific knowledge, but also by the application of creative thought and imagination that go beyond a traditional reductionist approach.
I am lucky to have found Carnegie Mellon, as it has allowed me to pursue a Bachelors of Technology and Art within their BXA Interdisciplinary Degree program. My concentrations are in mechanical engineering and industrial design.
