Generation Do

Engineering Drafting & Design students spent the last few weeks designing and casting golf putters. And if you build them, you have to test them, right? The @dunwoody.welding (Welding Club) stepped up and fabricated three fabulously unique holes for them to navigate. What do you think about that @cancanwonderland?
“After the pandemic I wanted a career that was reliable and stable,” #Electrical Construction & Maintenance student Denise Nickens said. “And I also wanted to be able to make a good income.” It was those requirements that led her to Dunwoody to pursue a degree in the high-demand, high-paying electrical career field 💡.

First-year student Kattye Gonzalez chose Dunwoody because of their #Architecture program. “It’s very unique and saves money for students who want to get licensed soon after graduating. I learn better in small groups and in an environment where I can talk to a teacher right away – and Dunwoody provides that."

Removing or lessening the financial barriers for women seeking careers in technical fields and the skilled trades is the goal of the Kate Dunwoody Society. Today was a day filled with inspiration as @sethjayshree (Jayshree Seth), Ph.D, a Corporate Scientist and Chief Science Advocate at 3M, was the keynote speaker at the annual fundraising luncheon. Attendees also heard the story of @sumeymey.mohamed, a third-year Interior Design student, and a recent recipient of one of the Kate Dunwoody Scholarships. Thank you to all of our sponsors who made the event possible. When barriers are removed women can soar.  #BornToDo.
Hands-on from day one. Our #electrical students have labs that have the look and feel of a real work site. We even have a three story house inside one of our labs. Come see for yourself. #BornToDo
Did someone say it may snow today? Just in time for snow plow season. The Dunwoody Snowplow team is already prepping for the Autonomous Snow Plow Competition with three new platforms. #BornToDo #Robotics

In Demand Graduates

” We know our graduates are in demand and will continue to be. Which means it’s our job to attract more students to the field. These are great careers and we need more highly skilled workers to help close the skills gap in Minnesota. “
