Cordillera Ranch Rising Star

Name: Mason Farmer
Age: 22
College: Texas A&M University at Galveston
Major: Marine Engineering
Interests/Activities: Hunting, fishing, golfing.

What made you choose your major?
I chose my major because it sounded like something I would like and would potentially be good at. I did really well in math in highschool and I like to take things apart and see how things work, so engineering seemed like a perfect fit.

What do you want to do after you finish college?
After college I want to try and use my major and get a job in the engineering field.

What do you think is the #1 issue with the Gulf/oceans?
I think that one big issue is that offshore drilling has really slow down since the BP accident. Although the government has started allowing offshore drilling again not many permits have been issued to companies since the bp accident. If the permit process could be accelerated I think that it could stimulate more drilling to create more jobs and increase business along the gulf coast.

Where do you see yourself professionally in 20 years?
In 20 years I hope to be have a steady job in engineering hopefully designing and working on offshore oil rigs, piping systems, or ships.

How were you prepared for college coming out of BHS?
Coming out of BHS I felt I was pretty well prepared. I even still use many of the things I learned in high school especially my math and chemistry classes.
