Profiles
Randall Berry Professional Profile Continued
What is the most important lesson you have
learned during your time in the field?
We have been living in a time of exponential
changes in things like computing power, memory,
and communication. This makes many ideas that
seemed impossible at one time, easily accomplished
at a future time. I think learning to appreciate this is
an important lesson.
Charlie Vidal Student Profile Continued
In what direction do you think the engineering
and other IEEE fields of interest are headed in
the next 10 years?
Automation and Virtual Reality are our future. Ever
since the industrial revolution, automation has been a
significant factor for working and everyday life. People
are constantly thinking of new ways to make things
easier and faster with less effort, and with self-driving
cars, smart homes, and AI now in our everyday lives,
we are really testing the limits as to how much we
can achieve in such a short period of time. Virtual
Reality is also becoming a bigger interest. My true
hope though, is to focus on green energy and cut
down on carbon emissions.
What is the most important thing you've learned
in school?
Life isn't school. When you are close to graduation,
you will start to see the world differently. Your
professors you worked under for years become
just other people. Your peers slowly progress into
adulthood just as much as you do. All the stress of
getting your assignments in on time and studying
for your final slowly fade away as you realize you are
progressing into a new stage of your life. Some might
say I just have senioritis and I just want to have fun
instead of do work, but that's not true. You slowly
start to understand the real world and how small
school is in relation to your life.
What advice would you give to other students
entering college and considering studying your
major?
My suggestion is to go out and enjoy your college
experience as much as you can and be truly happy
while you complete your degree instead of constantly
worrying about tests and homework and getting the
highest marks in the class. You can also learn more
important skills that way such as speaking skills and
having a charming personality, which are real-world
skills. I would also suggest looking into what you
want to do in the future to know where to focus your
skills. If you want to work at Google, go on coding
websites, and look up Google interviews so you can
start practicing from the start. If you want to go into
construction, make a lot of friends and learn to talk
with a lot of people, because that's what you'll be
doing in your future. Always remember to prepare
yourself for success.

What advice can you offer recent graduates
entering the field?
Continue to learn and re-invent yourself.
As I noted previously, we are in a very dynamic
and ever-changing field.
What is your favorite Eta Kappa Nu memory?
I have fond memories of making a wooden HKN
plaque as part of the requirement for joining the
Gamma Theta Chapter.
