Amy and a friend at the Three Gorges Dam China

Amy McCall 

Civil Engineering, Doctorate Student

What international experience have you had? 

A group of us from the Civil and Environmental Department from Brigham Young University had the opportunity to study and visit many of the "Mega-Structures" now being built in China. It was a wonderful experience where I learned more about engineering, the students and faculty I traveled with, the people of China and life in general.  

 

What have you learned through your experience in engineering?

Being a woman in engineering has been a great opportunity for me. I have enjoyed my time spent getting an education in engineering, working as a professional and now pursuing a Ph.D. I love engineering so much that I decided to return to school so I can one day teach it. I encourage all those thinking of pursuing an education in engineering to go for it!
