Hey there! My name is Neha (she/her/hers) and I’m currently a second-year student at Oregon State majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering. To me, engineering has always been akin to magic — with just a little bit of science and innovation, you can design solutions to some of the most complex problems in the world. Broadly speaking, I’d like to do just that.

Being from Portland, OSU was naturally on my mind during college application season. Something about the strong engineering program, hands-on research opportunities and tree-lined campus drew me in. But it was the honors college that sealed the deal. I fell in love with the tight-knit community of curious, driven learners and I knew that I wanted to be a part of it. Along those lines, I was attracted to the small, discussion-based classes. Not only have they enabled me to meet incredible friends, but they’ve been some of my favorite, most engaging college courses so far. I was also excited to take on an undergraduate thesis for which I’m currently exploring topics.

Apart from being an Honors College Ambassador, I am the Workshop Coordinator for Engineers Without Borders - OSU: a club committed to supporting community-driven development in our partner communities through sustainable potable water access projects. I’m also involved in the College of Engineering Leadership Academy.

As cliché as it sounds, your college experience is what you make of it and there is truly so much to explore. I’m here to help you make the most of it!
