When I was applying to colleges four and a half years ago, I decided I wanted to major in neural engineering. Inspired by a class in philosophy, I wanted to understand the basis of human thought, behavior, and consciousness at the most fundamental level possible. I wanted, specifically, to make a human brain from the bottom up by understanding human brain signaling. So when I came to Olin College, I took advantage of the Engineering: Concentrations major, which allows students to architect their own engineering-related majors with the help and approval of professors. Leveraging Olin's partnership with Brandies to take advanced neuroscience classes as well as the expertise of Olin's engineering professors, I designed my own interdisciplinary concentration in Neural Engineering.
