Passion for Robotics

Jordaine Wisdom ’23

Robotics Engineering

After just one semester at UHart, Jordaine Wisdom ’23 says he has found his new passion in robotics thanks to his participation in the CETA Design Expo his first semester. He chose to attend to UHart because of the small-sized classes and the ability to interact with his professors one-on-one. He says he was also drawn to the top class engineering program that the school offers. Now as a declared robotics engineering major, he is excited to continue working on improving his current projects and developing new skills in robotics.
