Welcome back to "My Week in ESTEEM" where students reflect upon their experiences in our program. This week's blog is brought to us by Christian Knight, a Notre Dame graduate, who discusses the first two weeks back to school after a relaxing break.
With classes already ramping up our second week in, the ESTEEM class has been off to an incredible 2nd semester. In classes, this week was filled with thesis student-advisor meetings looking forward to the final defenses approaching, sales management presentations, and each of us diving into our unique technical electives. On Tuesday, we were excited to present sales proposals to Serim, a local test strip company, after a rapidly collaborative week designing and analyzing go-to-market strategies for the small local company. While short, it was an incredible experience to provide applicable advice to a local startup company serving the healthcare, food, and military defense industries. I can't wait to see how Serim moves forward. In addition, I've been excited to face the challenges of my technical elective this semester, Human Gross Anatomy, which aligns with my medical industry thesis. As a civil engineering undergraduate, the material is quite a change of pace, but ESTEEM is constantly immersing me in new and exciting classes and material.
