Major Spotlight: CS Math

October 8, 2016

At Mudd, finally declaring your major is a big deal. We have until the end of sophomore year – that’s two years – to decide what we want to do, with up to four semesters of the Core Curriculum backing up our final choice. While getting exposure to different fields is a major perk of […]

Summer 2016: Research

September 19, 2016

As junior Mudd engineers, we are in the midst of the E80 series. Ranging from E82 Chemical and Thermal Processes to E86 Materials Engineering, we receive a broad, yet in-depth, technical education that upholds the definition of our general engineering degree. Each semester, we take electives or join research teams that help us find the […]

Summer 2016: LA + food

September 8, 2016

Junior year is upon the Class of 2018! Two more years of this grueling, yet exhilarating, adventure that is college. I spent the first 10 weeks of the break on campus doing biomed engineering research. Watch out for my next blog post for more details on Orwin lab’s tissue engineered Brain Patch project. But before […]

Sanskriti 2016

April 13, 2016

Last weekend I participated in Sanskriti, the annual South Asian Cultural show organized by the 5C club Claremont Tamasha.

A tour of my off-campus adventures

March 30, 2016

Four days a week, I venture off Mudd campus for at least 1.5 hours. My exciting destinations include my Worlds of Buddhism class on Monday and Wednesday, at Pomona, and Introduction to Philosophy on Tuesday and Thursday, at Scripps. The 5 Claremont Colleges are really close to each other. Pomona is a casual 15 minute walk […]

E72: Engineering Mathematics

February 27, 2016

Talk to any engineering major and E72 will definitely be on their favorite class list. Co-taught by the engineering and math department, E72 is a half-semester class all engineering majors are required to take along with E80 Experimental Engineering. It features 3 hours of class followed by long homework assignments that focus on applications of […]

Hyperlooping with SpaceX

February 10, 2016

SpaceX’s Hyperloop competition is the kind of thing I expect to hear about on the news or read an online article or two about, so it’s surreal that I get to talk to my peers about their involvement in building a fifth mode of transportation. Last year, 10 Mudders teamed up with engineering professors Orwin […]

Welcome back to SP2016!

January 27, 2016

Second semester sophomores have Mudd life a little different from their first three semesters here. While we initially take a majority of required core classes with the rest of our year, second semester sophomores switch gears to take a set of courses almost exclusive to their majors and HSA (Humanities, Social Sciences, and the Arts) […]
