Hello! My name is Eric Thomas and I am a junior in Ocean Engineering. I am originally from Massachusetts and am very happy I came to Florida for school. I am a member of the Florida Tech Baseball Club. When I am not doing school work or playing baseball, I enjoy going to the beach and exploring the outdoors. I would like to work in renewable energy or building submersibles after I graduate. I would highly recommend anyone with an interest in the maritime industry to join the Society of Ocean Engineers because it surrounds you with like minded people and opens up great opportunities.
