Chemical Engineering, Class of 2021
Hi! My name is Miranda, and I am a junior studying Chemical Engineering with an emphasis in Sustainable Energy. I am from Aurora, Colorado and although I miss the snow, I love the Southern California sunshine. On campus, I am a member of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers and a part of a 3D printing club called 3D4E. I am Chief Administrative Officer for my sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta, and I dance salsa with USC Break On 2. In my free time, I like walking through the Exposition Park Rose Garden and driving to the beach.
Check out what I have been up to in my recent blog posts!

My Major: Chemical Engineering
How did I pick my major?
I chose my major by looking at which subjects and career fields I was interested in. Science and math led me to engineering, and the application of those subjects to fields such as energy or cosmetic chemistry led me to chemical engineering.
My Netflix Obsessions
When I’m missing my siblings, I’ll turn on this show to laugh at the antics of the three siblings: Louise, Tina, and Gene.
I fast-forward to the segments with Dwight. If you’re interested, try Season 5 Episode 14.
Passion in the Classroom
My Favorite Courses
I got to take my first major class Introduction to Chemical Engineering and immediately loved it! All of my background knowledge in chemistry, math, and physics came together for the first time to help me solve engineering problems about mass and energy balances.
