Assignment#1: Elevator Pitch

Research, prepare and present a 2-3 minute elevator pitch on a field of architecture and engineering that interests you.  Explain what it is, and why it interests you.  Sell me on why this is the “best” field to go into.

… You of course know that I’m already biased toward one particular field of engineering, but don’t let that affect your presentation (LOL)

Your pitch will be presented on Friday, 8/31
