Student Trustee

As a first-generation college student at Long Beach City College, I am majoring in Chemical Engineering. When completing all my courses here on campus, I will fulfill all the requirements that will grant me three associate degrees in science. An Associate in Science for Transfer Mathematics, Associate in Science Engineering, and Associate in Science for Physics. After I have met all my requirements for transfer, I plan to transfer to a 4-year University where I can further my education. My career goal is to create and manufacture advanced technology that will change the way of medicine.
