Undergraduate Student

J.P. Huard

Major: Sustainable Biomaterials

Expected Graduation Date: Fall 2015


I started out at Virginia Tech in electrical engineering, thinking it was what I wanted to do based on my past experiences with engineering and background in robotics, but it didn’t feel quite right. I looked into sustainable biomaterials when it was suggested to me as a potential better fit, and fell in love with the major. I’ve always been a better hands-on learner and been inclined to build things, so I have used that to my advantage with this major and look to develop my abilities further.

Outside of class time, I love being outdoors and learning about cars. Whether I’m on the disc golf course, camping, hanging out by the river, racing, working on one of my many vehicle projects (current count is five in-progress), or even just having a bonfire, you can rest assured I’m probably not sitting idly indoors.
