Spotlight: Brandon Bok '16

As a Martindale Student Associate, Brandon Bok '16 traveled to Portugal to learn about its economy in meetings with industry leaders and to work with policy experts to publish a research paper on immigration in that country.

For his Integrated Business and Engineering capstone project, Bok was part of a team that worked with the Boeing Co. and the American Helicopter Museum to design a flight simulator for the museum and to create a business plan for it.

And as a managing fellow for the TRAC writing program, he helped business students to become better writers in a move toward a more collaborative student culture.

"These are some of my defining moments here that would not have been possible anywhere else," said Bok at Lehigh's 2016 Honors Convocation. "Amidst both trials and triumphs, it's been a truly fun and humbling ride."

Bok, who received dual degrees in IBE and mechanical engineering, accepted a position as a research analyst with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He said he eventually wants to pursue a doctorate in economics.
