Interview with WTI Graduate, William Owens- Integrated Electronics Technology Program
Why did you choose the program you did?
I chose WTI based on the job placement success rate. I knew that WTI would be the institution that would give me the proper training to succeed in the field of my choice.
What did you enjoy most about WTI? Why?
The entire staff, especially financial aid and career services. Instructors are extremely knowledgeable about all of the material. The administration was outstanding in assisting me with any obstacle I came across.
What are your career goals?
One of my long term goals are to become a project manager. I’m currently a controls engineer and this field is constantly growing.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I have a big family – a wife and six kids, so I enjoy playing with my children and spending quality time with my family.
Who do you admire? Why?
I admire Mr. Larry Asher. He is a member of the advisory board at WTI. I remember sitting down with Mr. Asher for the first time as he started to ask me questions about my training. I knew that I had chosen the right institution for my training. With my experience and training from WTI I was able to jump into a field I had no idea existed. Mr. Asher has been extremely helpful through my journey and still continues to advise me through my career choices. I would also recognize my wife for all the dedication and long nights of school that we went through. It wasn’t just a journey for me but for my family as well. Our family has benefitted from these career changes and I know others can as well when attending WTI.
