Tell us about your Berkeley IEOR experience. What were some of the best memories you had here?
My best memories were almost setting my apartment complex on fire, walking around Berkeley campus by myself at 3am in the morning for fun, and playing Smash until 6 or 7am with friends.
Why did you choose Berkeley IEOR?
I wanted to study applied math, statistics, and business. My parents wanted me to study engineering. IEOR seemed like a good compromise.
What was your favorite IEOR class and why?
IEOR 173 or 165. Both were cool classes with great professors (Zheng and Aswani respectively).
What are your post-graduation plans? How do you see your skills from IEOR being used in the future?
Product @ Roblox + maybe moonlighting some side gigs/businesses/startups in supply chain. IEOR like all engineering fields teaches you to be analytical but keep in mind that at most maybe 20% of what you learn in school is stuff you can actually apply in the real-world.
What advice do you have for younger IEOR students?
Don’t stay awake to play Overwatch and/or Skyrim for 37 hours straight, don’t drink 10 red bulls straight without eating anything, and don’t rub your eyes after eating a ghost pepper.
