This is Kofi Afriyie, a second-year civil engineering student at Morgan State University. I have always been fascinated with the inner and outer workings of buildings, bridges, and other structures, and I hope to pursue my interest at the doctoral level with a concentration in structural engineering. There is something about investigation, experimentation, the trial-and-error process, and the whole research experience that piques my interest. Outside of the formal education arena, I love to travel and engage in sporting activities (basketball and soccer), while also spending time thinking about practical solutions to problems using the emerging technologies available through a platform called MindSumo. I want to use i-Trek as a springboard to expand my horizon and understanding of engineering further and I am confident that the hands-on experience I obtain will be germane to my graduate school preparations.
