The Catholic University of America


Christine Dedoulis, B.B.E., class of 2017

Hometown: Washington, D.C.
Q: Why did you choose CUA?
CUA offered many of the qualities I was looking for in a university.  Remaining in the District allowed for many unique networking opportunities and classes taught by engineers at NIH, FDA, and Children’s Hospital.   Also, I felt that CUA supported women in the sciences and wanted to help their students succeed.  
Q: Achievements most proud of while at CUA
I am most proud of my group’s senior design project, The Gaitor Analysis System, because of all the hard work, time, and effort we put into it. It was an amazing feeling to see the project that we worked on for an entire year turn out as desired and have a real-world application.
Q: What extra-curricular activities did you participate in?
While at CUA, I was a member of the BMES, Society of Women Engineers, and the honors program.  I also worked at the Pryzbyla Center as an Ops Assistant.
Q: What did you like about CUA most?
I liked the community and spirit that goes along with being a Cardinal. No matter what day of the week, CUA always had an event going on for the students to keep them engaged in the community that catered to a large scope of interests.
Q. What are your plans after graduation?
I've accepted a position with the US Patent and Trademark Office and will explore my options for graduate school.
