Trentin has been able to put his education to use in some amazing ways, including programming, installing, and designing a robot arm as part of his senior project.

When Trentin Barber researched Alfred State’s electrical engineering technology program, he came away impressed for several reasons.

First, Trentin liked that the program offers small class sizes, which allows for more personalized attention from professors. Second, he appreciated being able to receive a hands-on education that would provide real-world knowledge and experience. 

Since becoming a student, Trentin has greatly benefited from both of these aspects of the program, as well as everything else that it has to offer.

“I’ve learned a lot of things I didn’t know before. This program has expanded my knowledge of the field and what to expect once you get into the workforce.”

As an Alfred State student, Trentin has been able to put his education to use in some amazing ways, including programming, installing, and designing a robot arm as part of his senior project. He also secured an internship with Corning Inc., where he gained real-world experience and landed a job even before he graduated.

“They offered me a full-time position as a robotic automation controls engineer.”

With his Alfred State education and a job already in hand, Trentin feels well prepared for that next step after graduation. He strongly urges interested students to check out his major.

“I definitely would recommend this program.”
