Alumni Profiles

When I decided to go back to school and seek a professional position, having Missouri Western located right here in St Joe was the perfect fit for me. MWSU provided a quality education without a long commute. My degree in Engineering Technology opened the door for a career in the Engineering field.

The fundamental knowledge, tools, communication skills and networking abilities that I gained from my time in the Engineering Technology program was pivotal in successfully training me for my profession. The bachelors and masters degrees from Missouri Western were very attractive to many local companies which led me to obtaining a great career as soon as I graduated.

The EET program at MWSU played an instrumental role in my career development by providing me the tools necessary to advance my career to the next level. As a non-traditional student, I had experience, but, lacked the higher educational degree many employees desired. In my current position with FedEx Ground, I am now in a situation I can present other Missouri Western Engineering Technology students and graduates the same possibility.

Cheers to the MWSU Engineering Technology Department. My newfound career with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as an Electrical Engineer is proving to be challenging and worthwhile. Without the dedication and expertise of the faculty and staff, I would not be in the position that I am in today. Their patience and drive helped me achieve, and for that I am truly grateful. I cannot thank you all enough.

The Department of Engineering Technology at Missouri Western has allowed me to surpass my goals in a working environment. I feel comfortable and knowledgeable in regards to my work place based on my education. This organization has also allowed me to continue my experience in achieving a Master’s Degree in Engineering Management while working in my job field.
