CU: What was your most challenging class in undergrad?

Tyler: Electrical Circuits 2. It led me to change disciplines.

CU: Do you think school prepared you for your first job, or was it more "on the job" training?

Tyler: There has been lots of on-the-job training, but I don't think I would be able to understand that training very well without the content I learned in college.

Tyler: Avoid more student loans

CU: What inspired you to do Engineering?

Tyler: I joined the pre-engineering program at Great Plains Technology Center, and it inspired me to continue on with the profession.

CU: What advice would you give to current students?

Tyler: Have fun, but not too much fun. Have just the right amount of fun.
