Robby Lankford, of Monroe, NC, graduated in May 2016 with a degree in Civil Engineering and a minor in Actuarial Mathematics. Robby will return to UNC Charlotte in fall 2016 to pursue a master’s in Mathematical Finance with a concentration in Risk Management. Robby also plans to pursue his Actuarial licensure during graduate school and hopes to relocate to Boston upon graduation. As a part of the Levine Scholars Program, Robby interned with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission and an Environmental Conservation NGO in London. He also studied abroad at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. “Being able to have experiences during the summers unrelated to engineering helped me decide what my next steps would be after graduation. I knew I wanted to branch off from my undergraduate degree, and those experiences ultimately led to the decision to diversify my education,” Robby said. During his time at UNC Charlotte, Robby was actively involved in various College of Engineering organizations, including serving as President of the Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society, Secretary of the Chi Epsilon Civil Engineering Honor Society and Secretary of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
