Samuel Vargas, Senior, Polytechnic Institute

Samuel Vargas was initially attracted to Purdue because of the high ranking of the College of Engineering. Sam finalized his decision to attend to Purdue after discovering the Minority Engineering Program (MEP) and their summer Engineering Academic Boot Camp (ABC). The idea of getting acclimated to Purdue prior to the first semester was appealing to him. The study skills that he learned and the free tutoring services offered through the Academic Success Center have allowed him to persist.

Sam is currently interested in pursuing a degree that focuses in the field of Robotics with a minor in Programming/Computer Science. He is strongly thinking about one day starting his own business in developing and inventing Robots or becoming an Imagineer at Walt Disney World. He firmly believes that becoming an entrepreneur will allow him to express his creative ideas in robotics.

Outside of school, Sam is interested in the intramural sports offered at the CoRec. He is also involved in the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) and sub-groups within SHPE such as SHPE Jr. and the SHPE go-kart team.
