design my own robotics someday
I've had sorts of crazy dreams in childhood, yet the passion for robotics has always retained. After studying physics, mathematics, and computer science in high school, I had a better insight on how I liked these subjects and figured that engineering impressed me. Therefore, I have devoted most of my spare time to robotics, learning programming, and attending online courses to master VEX robot construction. Since last year, I have led the School Robotics Club to participate in dozens of tournaments in and out of schools, and won several awards. However, compared to the achievement of the awards, I felt excited to harvest more skills. My experience proved me the important roles that mathematics and physics play to understand the underlying mechanics.
With a hope to design my own robotics someday, I want to join the Physics and Computer Science program in USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, which will provide me with a solid foundation in the fundamental concepts of classical and contemporary physics through experimentation, data analysis and mathematical modeling. With the support of accomplished faculty and numerous research opportunities, I am sure to equip myself with enough theoretical principles and hands-on experience in four years, and then I hope to achieve my goal in Viterbi School of Engineering at USC. The opportunities and diversity within USC combined with its geological edge would improve my campus life.
