Amanda Emrich graduated from Northern Illinois University with an Electrical Engineering degree with an emphasis in Biomedical and is now an RF (Radio Frequency) Engineer working on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Equipment. She actually has a teaching degree as well, and went back to school for engineering.
During her undergraduate degree she focused on antenna theory but on the job is where she was able to bridge the gap between theory and how to apply to practical problems. Amanda recommends that you always explore new opportunities, join organizations in college, attend career fairs, attend conferences, and volunteer at STEM events.
