The College of Applied Science and Technology not only prepared me for my career, but it also prepared me for life outside of my career. Through interactions with fellow students, professors, internship supervisors, and coworkers, I earned a "degree" in people and social skills that I did not get anywhere else. --Shawndell Hood

Mr. Hood is employed by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) as a Change Order Analyst.

He recalls that his best memory while attending the College "is meeting Brian Ballou, Associate Professor of Construction Engineering Technology. He invited me to attend one of his math classes that he was teaching before I chose the program. He showed so much passion for teaching his students that it made me want to join the program right then and there. I joined the program, and it has been one of the best decisions I have made."
