Life Long Learning
Throughout my college career and all of my internships, I have been exposed to the importance of life-long learning.

Life-long learning is usually continued by engaging in professional practice, reading in the technical literature, participating in continuing education courses, and by attending professional seminars and meetings. It is especially important to educate oneself nowadays with the exponential growth in engineering technologies and the practices.
