Peggy Dixon Two-Year Scholarship
I am eagerly looking forward to my senior year at McMurry University where I am pursuing an undergraduate degree in physics with an emphasis in mechanical engineering and a minor in mathematics. I have always been fascinated with learning how things work which has inspired my interest in physics. I am specifically interested in mechanics and the physics involved in mechanical systems. I seek to improve mechanical systems to increase their performance and efficiency. This next academic year, I will be studying efficiency for one mechanical system in particular as I conduct my senior research project on “Compound Bow Efficiency”. I will also write my honors thesis on the results of this research. As a current member of the McMurry University SPS chapter, I am very excited that I will also be serving as president for this next academic year. I plan to graduate in May of 2021, and after graduation, I will be exploring graduate school opportunities or employment in engineering.
