What Next

I aim to explore experiences that interest me, but most importantly challenges me. My Duke Biomedical Engineering experience has allowed me to combine skills from areas such as Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Material Science. This has resulted in my own designs of a hearing aid, hand plethysmograph, and circuit for ophthalmic use. In the future, I look forward to continuing to gain and utilize my skills for the betterment of human life.

Congratulations, You've always reminded us every yesterday is a memory of dreams and every tomorrow is a vision of hope. DUKE-degree.....what a milestone Love Dad/Mom/Jr./Kengelle
