Why did you choose Oregon Tech?
I chose Oregon Tech because of the hands-on experience with the engineering programs and the high employment rates after graduation.
What do you like best about your major?
The best thing about the engineering programs is that we can take the theoretical knowledge and apply it to practical situations. Oregon Tech is so unique that by the time we are ready to graduate we are “job ready” and that gives us an advantage when applying for jobs.
What would be your dream job in your major?
My dream job would be to start my own company in the manufacturing industry. There is no greater feeling than to take a raw material and turning it into a finished good.
What’s your favorite thing to do off campus?
My favorite things I have found to do off campus is to check out Mt. Shasta to go snowboarding, or go to the Klamath or Williamson river to go fishing.
What’s your most memorable moment on campus?
My most memorable moment on campus is creating and finishing the first Oregon Tech Composite Drift boat and floating it in the fountain.
