Student in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
I am Simeng Yang, a passionate learner who will be entering Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Waterloo in September of 2016. Mechatronics is a rising interdisciplinary field that combines elements from mechanical, electrical, software and systems engineering. I am equally interested in all of these areas and could not decide on only one, so Mechatronics is the perfect field of study for me.
While I had a hard time deciding on what branch of engineering I wanted to study or even if engineering was right for me, Waterloo was a natural fit. Their entrepreneurial atmosphere and worldwide reputation make Waterloo one of the best universities in Canada for STEM education.
My hobbies are varied and include such activities as swimming, trading and reading. I took part in both the swim team and water polo team at Westmount Secondary School, made thousands of dollars from trading virtual items in the Steam digital economy and love to learn!
