Hello future engineering volunteers!!
My name is Chris Cochran and I am a senior biomedical engineering student here at the University of Tennessee. I grew up in Blue Ridge, VA, however, I later moved to Woodstock, GA during my time in high school. I am always down to compete in any sport and more recently I began reading as a pastime. Of course I also enjoy video games and watching movies or shows, but I am also very passionate about woodworking and just being outside. Immediately after my tour when I first visited campus, I was sold on UT and decided it was home for me and I have loved every minute of it since. This is what drove me to want to be an ambassador for the engineering college.
Growing up I always loved a challenge. As a result, math and science quickly became my favorite subjects because I appreciated the problem solving aspects these subjects offered. These subjects combined with my enjoyment of creating and building things, as well as, my desire to understand how things work made engineering a easy choice. However, I was pretty set on being a mechanical or a chemical engineer until my junior year of high school. It wasn't until after a tour of a biomedical engineering production facility, I discovered the passion I have for prosthetics and implants and their positive impact on peoples' lives. I decided then and there that biomedical engineering was for me.
While at UT I have gotten plugged into a couple of Christian ministries, such as The Walk and Phi Slam, which I am a founding member. I am also a part of the Biomedical Engineering Society and I am heavily involved in intramurals (sometimes too involved)!
I love it here at the University of Tennessee and feel there is a home for everyone. I can't wait to see you here!!
