Industrial Engineering, Safety Emphasis

Mar 7, 2011

Career Program: Industrial Engineering, Safety Emphasis

Student Name: Theodore (Ted) Beres
Age: 24

Hometown: Pine River, WI

Current Residence: Oshkosh, WI

Why did you choose the Industrial Engineering (Safety emphasis) Program?
I chose this program because I am very concerned with the safety and health of employees in the workplace, and it will allow me to become a Safety Coordinator. I also hope to take my education and develop a new safety device or a new way to keep employees safe according to OSHA standards.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?
Honestly, everything about my career field is extremely interesting. You’d be surprised how in-depth safety really is. In today’s society, I think it can be overlooked because we are often in such a rush to get things done.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?
I chose Fox Valley Technical College because of the staff and programs. The first day I walked into FVTC, I was told by the Enrollment Services staff that I was going to succeed. That had me hooked. Initially, my plan was to go to FVTC for one year then transfer to a four-year college. Once I got started, however, I got so involved with the Oshkosh Student Board, Phi Theta Kappa and Student Life, that I decided to stay. I would have never been as happy as I am now if I would’ve gone on to a four-year college.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?
After graduation, I expect to find a Safety Coordinator job. However, I also plan to continue my education by getting a bachelor’s degree in engineering or psychology, and eventually a master’s degree. Then I hope to one day come back and teach in the technical college system.
