Graduating Year: 2024

Education: Electrical and Electronics Engineering Technology with Minor in Spanish

"The EEET program has allowed me to learn about different areas that an engineer needs in the real world as well as to provide challenges to broad my understanding about power systems and electronics, working in teams and improving my problem-solving skills, which I will need in the future."

Career: I would like to be working on renewable energy such as solar energy and hydrogen fuel cell to help reduce the carbon footprint for future generations.

EEET students require a lot of problem solving skills, adaptability and be able to work well with others in a team setting
