Hello future engineering Vols!
My name is Paulina Urbanowicz and I am a junior majoring in industrial engineering and minoring in reliability and maintainability. I was actually born in Poland but I have grown up right down the road in Oak Ridge, TN. By being so close to campus I was able to attend many events and quickly fell in love with the campus and couldn’t wait to be on Rocky Top!
In my free time I love spending time outside and enjoy hiking, walking, kayaking, rock climbing, and swimming! Having the Great Smoky Mountains close by makes it a great place to visit and make new memories. I enjoy seeing new places, going on adventures with friends, and of course attending UT football games (nothing beats being in Neyland on game day!!)
Shortly after starting my freshman year I realized that UT had so many opportunities to offer. On campus I have had the chance to get involved with Society of Women Engineers, Women of Haslam, Chancellor’s Honors Program, Honors and Scholars Living and Learning Community, Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers, and Alpha Pi Mu. In addition to my interests in engineering, I have always been interested in the business aspect, leading to my engagement with the Heath Integrated Business and Engineering Program. Through these opportunities I have made some of my best friends here at UT.
This past summer I completed an internship with Kellogg in Jackson, TN at their Pringles Manufacturing Plant. I actually worked in their Cracker Business Unit and I had the chance to work on a project that contributed to developing a valuable skill set. I had a wonderful learning experience and can’t wait to apply what I learned over the summer back into the classroom. Having the opportunity to work in industry was eye opening, and I gained an appreciation for manufacturing.
I have absolutely loved my time here at UT and am so excited that you are considering Rocky Top to be your home! UT has something to offer for everyone and you will find so many opportunities to grow as an individual. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to reach out, I would be more than happy to help. I hope to see you on campus soon and as always GO VOLS!
