Why did you choose the Electrical Engineering Technology program?

I am interested in troubleshooting and working hands-on with electronics. It’s fascinating to me how it all works and operates. The Electrical Engineering Technology program offers just what I was looking for without too much stress.

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

I am learning about all the basic electronic principles. I find it interesting that what I am learning is the source of all our basic technology. I really enjoy putting circuits together and seeing the light or speaker turn on.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?

My father graduated from the two-year Electrical Engineering Technology program at FVTC. I acquired the same interests about hardware and technology and decided to follow in his footsteps. FVTC is the perfect place for hands-on courses, which is what I prefer, instead of just lectures and papers.

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

FVTC helped me to find the hands-on program I was looking for to get into the field that is best for me.

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

I am currently in a paid internship with a company called MAB Technologies and plan to work there full-time after I graduate in December.
