Cole Brauer Pursuing an MS in Engineering at Arizona State University
Arizona State University, 2019, B.S.E. Engineering (Robotics)

“Being a part of the Grand Challenge Scholars Program gave me the opportunity to explore classes and experiences beyond what would normally be included in my major.  My experiences in entrepreneurship and service learning helped me to realize my interest in engineering education, and influenced the selection of my GCSP theme and my research topic which, in turn, inspired me to pursue a career that also includes robotics research. My participation in the GCSP also has provided me with skills that I will need to achieve my goals including experience teaching, developing educational products, and conducting research. The interdisciplinary and multicultural components have helped me to think about how to avoid the negative effects of technology in education and how to interact with students and researchers from other cultures.”
