Andrea Garmilla

Favorite Course 20 subjects and why?
20.320–Analysis of Biomolecular and Cellular Systems was the class that made me feel like an engineer. I learned so much and worked so hard in that class. It was so great to see everything that we learned be integrated into our final project. 20.380–Biological Engineering Design was such a great experience. It was super fun to have an idea, do a lot of research about it, and develop a product. Having an amazing team was also a plus (S/O to Team Mosquito)!!

What will you miss most about being an undergraduate at MIT?
I will really miss all of the people around me. At MIT, everyone is so passionate. It’s incredible! Of course, I will also miss going to class with my Course 20 friends every day and being able to learn from incredible people!

Where will you be next year?
I’ll be starting medical school in the Harvard/MIT MD-PhD Program!

Who deserves a shout-out?
My family and friends who have supported and motivated me over the last 4 years, and of course, the amazing faculty in Course 20 and my mentors, especially my UROP mentors, who have taught me so much!
