Austin Milton - Tulsa Technology Center
THEN: A middle school student participating in a pre-engineering presentation by high school students. Austin enjoyed building a structure out of straws and toothpicks and decided to learn more about how things work. At TTC, he enrolled in pre-engineering classes and
- Learned how to use Computer Aided Design software.
- Developed an understanding of what each discipline of engineering does.
- Learned how to study and what to expect in higher level classes.
NOW: Austin’s hands-on experience at TTC prepared him for the challenging curriculum that he faces at Oklahoma State University as a mechanical engineering major. He is an active member of the OK State Formula SAE Racing Team, building race cars from the group up. Following an internship at John Zink Hamworthy Combustion in Tulsa last summer, Austin looks forward to graduation in May with a fulltime mechanical engineering position waiting for him there.
