Civil engineering major Karla Pineda knows she can make a difference, and her birthplace of El Salvador was a vital component to her channeling that dedication into transportation engineering.

She sees changes in transportation as a solution to some of the world's grand sustainability challenges.

And as she prepares to close the chapter on her bachelor's program and head into her accelerated master's, she reflects on how George Mason University inspired her and is preparing her for her career.

Mechanical engineering student Daniel Scott Mitchell wears many hats. Problem-solver, entrepreneur, podcast host, and intern are just a few.

Mitchell took a year off from his formal education to crisscross the country to put his skills to work at internships with top companies like Tesla, Formlabs, and Rivian. Seemingly nontraditional, Mitchell saw it as a chance worth taking.

Our last graduate feature may look a little familiar. 👀

Civil engineering grad Brandon Krzynefski was featured in January by George Mason University for his success at the Tokyo 2019 Trampoline and Tumbling World Championships.

His drive to excel in engineering and compete with the USA Gymnastics national team initially drew Brandon to Mason. See what he has to say! ⬇️

"I chose Mason so I could get my engineering degree while competing as a gymnast on the USA National Team.

Doing both would not have been possible without support from the CEIE department. All of my professors took interest in my athletic endeavors and encouraged me to be my best self both in the classroom and on the competition floor.

I am proud to be Patriot!"

We are happy to have you as an alumni Brandon!

Yesterday we said see you later to our December 2020 graduates, but some of them, like Martin Chris Boddu who graduated with his master's degree in civil and infrastructure engineering, wanted to leave with some advice.

"Make use of the facilities provided here at George Mason University. With all your assignments and stress from work, it can be overwhelming, but we were provided enough resources to actually learn and understand things better."

If you know a fellow graduate, make sure to congratulate them on their hard work and tag us in your posts so that we can join in.

Congratulations graduates, we wish you all the best!

"I couldn't be happier that I chose Mason."

For Nguyen Dang, coming to George Mason University from Northern Virginia Community College was an easy decision. And once he arrived, his professors helped him with the not-so-easy parts of earning his computer science degree.

"I liked the location, the dynamics, and the diversity of the students. My professors at Mason helped me finish my courses with confidence and satisfaction."

To him, they are powerful tools to educate people and help them understand other's realities.

“VR/AR can show people what life is like as a person with Down syndrome. It can show them what it is like to be a person of color, an immigrant, the possibilities are endless,” SaidAhmed says.

LANGUAGE OF THE UNIVERSE Infinite objects scenario in the universe is a miracle. It opens up a different angle whether there is any other universe? Just look at the sky and harmonious behaviour of the nature. Our safe day to day life on earth is apparently due to absence of collusions at a noticeable scale except natural wear and tear of objects. This safety is because of gravitation impact of each object and regulated space in between. Gravitation impact must be in varying degrees due to prevalent conditions from object to object. Lesser is the gravitation, more is the energy output. So E=mc2 on earth could undergo a change elsewhere as for the said equation conditions on the earth are specific. There are two evident groups in universe, living and nonliving; both carrying soul energy, the former with self-activation and latter needing external support. The energy in nonliving is not as powerful as that in living. Ageing in both is natural, entry and exit is beyond imagination. The exit may be absorbed in nature. Nothing happens at random but on a calculated format which is not restricted to known mathematics. Oxygen for living is on earth. This might be in different manner on other objects. So there is a certainty of living elsewhere too, may be even in advanced technology. Perhaps knowing other living pattern would go a long way as medical support and backup. The existence of other universal setups cannot be ruled out; as there may be safe distance between them like objects in the known universe. It appears that there must be one common language in waves spread in the universal frames for communication purpose and on which footing the natural phenomenon rests on sound and safe pillars. The language is made known to us by thunders, lightening, and sounds of waves. Further the universal language is presented through beautiful seasons. Our weather forecasts depend upon wave movements and degrees of sound. Study of atomic sub particles in communication waves would pave way to understand some threads of universal language. Once this is analysed, messages of any calamities would be in sight along with remedy routes. This is complicated but simple once energy wave functioning is within our reach through common universal language. To put the best foot forward, framing a full-fledged probe of the nature is essential. Natural rules will ever remain permanent and scripting thereof is paramount. Flow of waves encompasses the universe covering all that exists in visible and invisible sectors. Nature is a big treasure and atomic sub particles are the basics. Interestingly all objects might be having soul energy and inter 2 communications must be on with some common language in waves as otherwise concealed harmonious splendor is impossible. Segregation of communication waves is the prime need to enrich discovery dimensions. Everything is in abundance and only routes are to be revealed. Like mobile operations some code numbers of the universal setups and that of each object may be functioning, decoding of which is possible through atomic sub particle wave communicators. Virtual reality is nature is not completely known to science; even a part is also incomplete. Green neighborhoods on earth will be a good step for environment care. Tapping and transformation in waves is responsible for universal installation and development. Due to environment disturbances, wear and tear and fast ageing of objects including earth, a changed scenario can occur. A new ball moves efficiently but damaged one would restrict its action; likewise ageing of objects would develop wobbling in rotations causing problems beyond control. Such a situation would affect life. So clean environment is to be maintained to help the earth in particular and the universe in general to at least some extent. Mathematics and knowledge of atomic sub particles is to be achieved through universal language for which segregation of communication wave areas is to be sourced out. Perhaps then regular and irregular tapping and transformation of atomic sub particles may be in sight with causes thereof which would benefit to prevent natural crisis situations. At the end everything is in plenty in the universal sub particle waves, out of which communication waves are to be separately studied to know universal language. This universal language would take us beyond horizon to reach the sky, the common universal umbrella. This route will open windows for immeasurable parameters so far unknown to benefit the mother earth by which minimum inputs and maximum results will be on the card for world citizens welfare. Basically world citizens are first universal citizens and therefore nature would look after the earth through our sincere efforts to keep the atmosphere pollution free. 3 In mathematics 1 plus 1 equals to 2 on the earth but if values thereof differ on other objects due to different gravitation range, the result of 2 on the earth would be either less or more for energy output. The net result of energy is after defying gravitation only. Again square of any figure is more than addition; but in case of square 1 and 2 it is not so; 1 plus 1 = 2 and square of 1 is 1 and 2 plus 2 = 4 and square thereof is also 4. Therefore some combination is needed through universal language to support probing calculation of the universal working. Finally the universal language is the only source to decipher universal conditions and codes to have sound accounting system to adopt the theory of relativity between the earth and the rest of the universe in totality. This may be termed as a magic method but its relevance requires to be investigated to improve quality of life on the earth. Science is important for which science of science is essential to relate the earth conditions to the rest of the universe for better results as the earth is a part of the sprawling universe.
