Alumnus Dan Deans (B.S. ASE 1990) recalls having a crisis in college.

“I ended my freshman year as a pre-med biology major on scholastic probation, which is when my dad suggested I try engineering. You know, another easy major,” he said jokingly as he reminisced on his early years at UT Austin. “I always loved airplanes, and my dad was a pilot. So, I decided to switch to aerospace engineering. He did me a huge favor that day.”
