Hands-on learning, great options and a great environment help graduate earn three degrees at Gateway
It took leaving a four-year college and coming to Gateway Technical College for Trevon Trussell to gain the skills for a career – and to gain the pathway back to earning a four-year degree.
Trevon’s earned three degrees at Gateway and has already transferred to the Milwaukee School of Engineering, where he entered as a junior because of a transfer agreement between the two colleges.
“Gateway is an excellent college, and they are with you each part of the way. If you want to go directly into industry, they are there to help you to gain the education and skills to do that. If you want to earn your four-year degree after Gateway, they are here to help you with that, too.”
Trevon earned an associate degree in Electrical Engineering Technology, a Biomedical Engineering Technology concentration degree and a degree in Electronics.
He had begun his education at a state university before realizing he needed to explore another option. He researched colleges – and became interested in Gateway’s EET program. Trevon said the college helped him to get on the pathway to his career passion.
“I like working with my hands,” says Trevon. “My mom always tells this story that when I was a kid, I would always take things apart to see how they worked. I think I always had an interest in electrical engineering, it just took me coming to Gateway to fully realize that.”
