I particularly enjoyed collecting the QSL cards that
are shown on the cover and distributed through
the issue.
Why did you choose to study
the engineering field?
Electronics and computers were a hobby of mine
originally, which led me into electrical engineering. I
have come to realize that computer engineering is
what I enjoy studying now.
What do you love about engineering?
Engineering is always evolving. So many changes
and advances in the science are taking place, and
this is where the cool hands-on stuff occurs.
