Nick DeLucia is a Mechanical Engineering major with an Aerospace Concentration. He's from Mansfield, MA. Nick shares why he chose to attend Catholic University and the School of Engineering, and what advice he has for prospective students.

Why did you choose to attend Catholic University and the School of Engineering?

"I chose to attend Catholic University and the School of Engineering because I wanted to major in engineering at a school in the D.C. area that had its own campus with plenty of green space and Catholic University fit the bill perfectly."

Why do you want to be an engineer?

"I wanted to be an engineer because I've always been interested in airplanes and space flight and so the chance to actually be able to work with airplanes such as my senior project and spaceflight is the reason I chose to become an engineer."

What's been your favorite part of being a student at Catholic University?

"My favorite part of being at Catholic University is the sense of community that's here. From my friends to classmates and professors to just walking by other people on campus, it feels like you know everyone even when you don't."

What advice would you give to prospective students?

"Engineering is fun but can be hard. If you need help, reach out to your professors. They want to help you and will be more than happy to do so, but won't know what you're struggling with if you don't. Most importantly, Give it your best shot! You never know until try and even then, always ask for help!"
