Matthew, class of '06/'07

“There’s no substitute for real field experience.”

Matthew majored in Surveying Engineering Technology. He was hired right out of college by the engineering firm, Erdman Anthony, in Rochester. He credits professors and summer internships with equipping him for the real world.

"My classes stressed what employers will expect on the job from faculty that had worked in the real world. Books don't teach you about building crew morale and dealing with politics at client meetings."
