Hello! My name is Courtney Van Bussum. I made my way here to ASU from Boulder, Colorado to study engineering. I have spent the past four years pursuing a degree in Biomedical Engineering and will be graduating with my bachelors of science in May 2017. During my time as a Grand Challenge Scholar, I focused on the specific grand challenge theme of health, since it aligned closely with my interests in medicine. Thank you for taking the time to check out my GCSP journey through the summaries and information outlined in this comprehensive portfolio.
The Grand Challenge Scholars Program encourages a multi-disciplinary and holistic approach to engineering education through five key pillars: Service Learning, Global Dimension, Entrepreneurship, Interdisciplinary Curriculum, and Research Experience. In this portfolio, you will learn how I completed each requirement during my journey as a Grand Challenge Scholar.
