Success Stories

Graduating senior James Brino says, “I would not change anything during my time at UHart. It has been an amazing ride.”  That’s a great sentiment to have after years of studying hard for a mechanical engineering degree with an acoustics concentration through the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA).
 
Come the fall, James will begin working at General Dynamics Electric Boat as an Engineer I, in the Ship Signature department. He made connections at GDEB while interning this past summer.  It was on the last day of his internship that he was offered the full-time position.
 
When asked about his favorite things at UHart, he says, “I worked with such amazing faculty and staff members. I feel that every faculty and staff member truly cares about our success.”
He credits mechanical engineering faculty Bob Celmer and Eion King for helping him with his studies, research, and landing the internship that eventually turned into what will be his new job.
 
In addition to excellent mentorship, James says that UHart also socially prepared him to succeed after college. His advice to incoming students would be to get involved. James says, “I have made lifelong friends in clubs and organizations, and have gotten so much out of these groups both academically and socially. I have been able to learn so much during my time at UHart.”

I would not change anything during my time at UHart. It has been an amazing ride.
