Get to Know Us
Tyriek Bryant is from Teaneck, New Jersey and he's a packaging engineer. He's in the Skateboard Club and in the university-wide Scarlet Honor Council which reviews cases of student misconduct on campus.
“My dream was to be an engineer, and when I weighed my options, Rutgers Engineering was my top choice. It has a great reputation and as a state school, very affordable tuition.”
Tiffany Yang served as president of the Society of Women Engineers and was also involved with the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.
“I chose Rutgers because I wanted to be at a big school with diversity – one where you get more opportunities for leadership and professional development. I was drawn to STEM at an early age and I'm proud to be a woman engineer because women need to see other women in male-dominated industries.”
KRISTIN DANA, PHD
Professor Electrical and Computer Engineering
Dr. Kristin Dana is leading a Rutgers team to create a new, interdisciplinary curriculum for robotics specialization that focuses on technology, cognitive science, and policy. The long-range goal is to grow a community of researchers able to apply an understanding of social structures and processes to the development of robotics systems that benefit both individuals and society as a whole.
“What we need are robotic devices to work for people and help make their lives better.”
