Meet Kathryn

Workforce Challenge

Kathryn was laid off from an aviation engineering firm in November of 2011. Though she had a wealth of valuable work experience, she did not have a degree specific to engineering. Updating her education was necessary to get her back into the workforce.

Workforce Solution

With assistance from the Kansas Engineering Excellence Program, Kathryn began course work to complete her bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering.

Outcomes & Benefits

After two semesters at school, Kathryn started employment at Carlson Products as a commercial and industrial kitchen equipment designer while still pursuing her bachelor's degree. She credits her education in propelling her in a new direction outside off aviation manufacturing.
