Isha Dev

College of Engineering '24


My major is Bioengineering with a concentration in Cellular Engineering, and I graduate in the Spring of 2024. I am the current Captain of the Temple Badminton Club, former President of the Temple chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society, and former Vice Regent of the Pi Epsilon chapter of the Theta Tau Engineering Fraternity. Throughout my undergraduate career, I have been a Temple Owl Ambassador, Resident Assistant and Diamond Peer Teacher. I have been conducting research as part of the Tissue Imaging and Spectroscopy Lab in the Department of Bioengineering since Spring 2022 and have been a Mathematics Tutor at the Math Consulting Center in the Department of Mathematics since the Fall of 2021. 

What are your career goals?

I have been accepted into programs at the University of Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins University, Columbia University, and Georgia Tech. After graduating from Temple University with my undergraduate degree, I will be attending Johns Hopkins University to pursue a master's degree in Biomedical Engineering with a hope to specialize in Biomedical Data Science. Further, I want to pursue a career in bioinformatics and health data science and analytics. 

How has the Career Center helped you achieve your career goals?

The Career Center not only helped me with my resume, cover letter and other application materials as I applied to jobs and internships through my time at Temple, but also with writing refined and comprehensive Statements of Purpose during the graduate school application process. I was able to get help with formatting my resume specifically for graduate admissions and get consistent feedback on the various iterations of my essays. 

What tips do you have for students also navigating their careers?

I found that I learned so much through taking advantage of opportunities regardless of whether they were directly relevant to my field. I was able to take away important lessons from the hobbies and activities I engaged in for my own enjoyment just as much as my internships and the research that I performed to become more experienced within my own field. I would advise other students also navigating their careers to not shy away from interesting experiences merely because they're different from their chosen field of study.
