Tiana Robinson - Civil Engineering
"Hi, my name is Tiana Robinson. I’ve lived in Washington D.C. my entire life. At an early age, I always wanted to be a civil engineer. I decided the best way to achieve my aspiration for civil engineering was to attend a STEM driven universities.
"I chose to attend University of Massachusetts Lowell because the university was a great fit for me in terms of education, career path opportunities, and social club activities that help me connect with other students and faculty members on campus. I am currently majoring in civil engineering and next semester I plan on minoring in business administration.
"My goal at UMass Lowell is to obtain a master’s degree in civil engineering, obtain the required certification for civil engineering, and eventually start my own construction company in the future. While at UMass Lowell, I’ve joined many civil engineering clubs that focus on bridge construction, transportation related projects, and urban planning. Also, I had the opportunity to join the club basketball team. Furthermore, UMass Lowell offers co-op internships for students who are interested in working with company related to your major. I would encourage any student who is interested in attending UMass Lowell because the university offers multiple degree paths, a variety of clubs and organizations. The school provides opportunities to connect with other students who have similar interests as you, and provides help from faculty members ranging from academic related issues to help with future career paths and internships."
