Through real-world experiences and receiving live, hands-on training every day, Aaron's very confident about his future.
Aaron Aumick loves learning all of the different aspects of the construction world at Alfred State, from drywall, to interior surfaces, to rough framing.
In his major, Aaron is being educated on how to build a house from the foundation to the last shingle on the roof. One very notable house Aaron helped construct was Team Alfred’s entry in the 2015 US Department of Energy Solar Decathlon, which challenges collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive.
“Competitions like the Solar Decathlon are putting us one step ahead of everybody else and allowing us to see how green energy works.”
In recognition for his hard work and achievements, Aaron was named the School of Applied Technology’s 2016 recipient of the Dean’s Award for Academic Excellence. Through real-world experiences and receiving live, hands-on training every day, he is very confident about his future after graduation.
“I’m definitely glad I made the choice to come to Alfred State. I know I’m pretty much guaranteed to have a job once I come out of this program.”
