Stephen Adeoye journeyed to UCF from Nigeria after receiving his bachelor’s in Engineering from the Federal University of Technology Akure. After receiving high honors and graduating as the best student within the department of Mechanical Engineering, UCF’s engineering program caught his eye because of its diversity and the highly respected reputation he learned about from conversing with others who attended the university. Since accepting admission, he hasn’t regretted his decision since saying, “I find the class options offered to be very holistic. I have learned a great deal of new principles and approaches in solving engineering problems from the start of my program.”
Adeoye earned his master’s in Mechanical Engineering from UCF and is currently pursuing his Mechanical Engineering PhD. While pursuing a doctoral degree, he is working on research that focuses on thermal management of electronic devices where he studies the heat transfer rates in miniaturized electronic chips. His passion for learning and drive to working things out even after repeated failures is what draws him to his research. “It’s a very advanced area of research. It is also quite challenging and motivates me to see new potentials in myself,” he says. He then spent a month working with the Cornell Nanoscale Facility at Cornell University in 2019. During this trip, Adeoye spent time in training to work in the facility and formulated recipes for achieving his target device.
After graduation, Adeoye looks forward to working in his field of engineering alongside renowned researchers. “To me, engineering is not just about playing with machines or working on math formulas. Engineering is really about fulfilling a need within society, and I am devoted to contributing to the world professionally and academically through this field,” Adeoye says.
