Meet Bruce

Civil and Environmental Engineering

Civil and Environmental Engineering // Sophomore // Knoxville, Tennessee. After just one year at UT, Bruce has some great advice for new students: don't be afraid to reach out to a professor and say, “Hey, I know I'm a freshman, but I'm willing to learn and want to be a part of what you do.” Next thing you know, you may be working with microbes from Antarctica.

“People here are very willing to help you achieve your goals.”

“I’ve listened to people from all over the world speak about their work and life. I love just talking to people about what they do at UT and abroad.”
