Bachelor of Science in aerospace engineering, 2019

Current Job Title:

Corporate Metrology Engineering 

Current Employer:

Fabri-Kal 

Describe your current job:

I design, process, and implement specialized fixtures for plant floor and lab measurements.  I also create presentations for projects that analyze statistical data from tests and graphs and figures made in Minitab for the presentations.  I conduct tests to evaluate the current state of the quality of products. 

What is the most rewarding and the most challenging part of your job?

The freedom. I am trusted enough to do all my work without much supervision. This is also the most challenging aspect too, because I am forced to learn on my own most of the time. 

If you had a campus job or internship, how did they impact your career development? 

I started off with an on-campus job. This was good for transitioning into the college lifestyle. But, as I progressed I took on more responsibilities where at the end of my college career I was working full time as an engineer while completing my last semesters. I was able to all of this in four years. 

What advice would you offer students to help them decide on a career path? 

Try to mix your talents and interests to start. If you follow this you will eventually find interest in what you are doing; it won't be all the time but there are many aspects for each degree.
