“I always thought that engineering and art were opposites and you couldn’t really do both,” she says. But she quickly found herself gravitating more toward mechanical engineering. Her time in quarantine helped her realize that her twin passions of art and engineering didn’t have to be mutually exclusive. In the senior capstone class 2.009 (Product Engineering Processes), Satterfield had an opportunity to merge her love of art and engineering further. Working with her fellow mechanical engineering students on a large, intensive project like Palette gave Satterfield a preview of what working on an engineering team in industry would be like.
