Hello! My name is Jessica Baumann and I’m a rising junior and Engineering Physics major at the University of Wisconsin – Platteville.
There are two things in that sentence that many people don’t know about. One is where Platteville is located. Platteville is in the southwest corner of Wisconsin, about 20 minutes away from the Wisconsin/Iowa border.
Secondly, most people don’t know anything about Engineering Physics. This major consists of curriculum taught to mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and physics majors. I enjoy this major because I feel like—once I’m out of college—it can lead to many opportunities, as I’ll have knowledge from several different areas of engineering.
