Biomedical Engineering Student Spotlight: Mary Mkrtchyan

Mary Mkrtchyan Posted on August 04, 2017  in  [ Engineering & Technology ]

Mary Mkrtchyan is a Grand Canyon University student studying biomedical engineering. Thanks to advanced technology labs, the dedication of her professors and the support that she receives from the university’s advisors and faculty, Mary is certain that GCU is preparing her for the next chapter of her life.

Mary explains that biomedical engineering is not an easy field of study. However, she feels that she is becoming an engineer because during her classes, the activities that she’s involved in, and her time working in the Lounge, she is learning how to troubleshoot problems quickly. Also, the students have opportunities to interact with doctors and provide them with the tools that they need to be successful in their practice.

As for her future, Mary wants to build her own company and have the chance to create the advanced technologies that doctors of today are using. She hopes to one day see medical professionals using her innovations in practice.

The biomedical engineering student goes on to explain that as a student at GCU, she’s able to develop an understanding of what her purpose is, which is to be a leader and to help those around her. Mary is excited to learn and wants everyone else to share in that emotion. You can watch the video below to see Mary’s full testimonial.
