Why did you choose the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program?

I’ve always been intrigued by not only learning how things work but also how they are made. The Manufacturing Engineering program allows me to get the hands-on training that challenges me and helps me learn lifelong skills that will benefit me in my future.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?

I find it interesting to learn the various processes that go into manufacturing a product and how those processes can be improved. It will be rewarding to know that I had a say in how a product works and the processes necessary to manufacture it.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?

Fox Valley Technical College is exactly what I was looking for in a post-secondary education. I am privileged to learn what I need to from hands-on experiences rather than reading about it in a textbook. The instructors are very passionate about their respective fields and very helpful to students when they need it. They also are helpful in connecting students to area employers in the field they are interested in.

How did Fox Valley Technical College help you change your life?

FVTC has made it much easier for me to be passionate about my education. It’s much easier to put effort into school when you enjoy learning about the subjects you are studying.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?

After graduation I plan on finding a job that will allow me to improve manufacturing processes and make people’s jobs easier. I also hope to be challenged in different ways every day I go to work.
