MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
Alex Boyd
Alex Boyd

I'm a mechanical engineering major pursuing a minor in computer science. I've always loved combining my passion for physics with my computer programming to create simulations, interactive tools, and video games. My ideal job lies somewhere between CAD modeling and programming a physics engine. Some of my other interests include writing music, cooking, and contemplating useless math conjectures (e.g. Collatz)
