STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: JANSEN DAKIN, ACADEMY OF ENGINEERING
Jansen Dakin

Jansen Dakin, a junior at Glasgow High School, is currently job shadowing at American Engineers, Inc., a civil engineering firm located in Glasgow. Jansen spends part of his school day collecting data, completing spreadsheets, and reviewing site plans for American Engineers. Their services include transportation, geotechnical, bridge and structural, site design, geospatial, and environmental.

 

Jansen believes his engineering classes at GHS have been helpful in his ability to complete the tasks at American Engineers, Inc. He stated, “The civil engineering class I took last year gave me the base knowledge about what civil engineers do.” This sentiment was even voiced by his Engineering teacher, Mr. JR Dakin. Dakin further stated that Jansen’s experience with American Engineers, Inc. is “exposing him to things that happen in an office setting, in a lab setting, as well as in the field.” Dakin believes that Jansen will be able to build upon his job shadowing experience as he works towards his chosen career path. Jansen plans to major in civil engineering and believes his experience has given him a huge advantage in knowing how and what civil engineers do throughout any given day. This experience has shown him what to expect when he enters the workforce.
