Architecture student readies for career and transfer to four-year college
Gateway Technical College graduate Jack Holtman’s college project working with a local nonprofit group prepared him for his career by giving him the opportunity to apply his skills to a real-world situation.
At the same time, he was also able to help others in need and see a close-up view of the impact his work will have on others as he enters his career.
Jack graduated from the college’s Architectural-Structural Engineering Technician program and says he’s gained some great skills, in part, through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity. The group needed some very specific and new plans for a home to be built in Kenosha and turned to Gateway to help them out.
Jack’s home design was one of two from his class selected by Habitat to be built in a Kenosha neighborhood. Before he even graduated college, Jack had already designed an actual house that will soon be constructed and lived in.
