Transfer student turns interest in electrical engineering into career with MyPath2ASU
Jared Gale always envisioned going to college and was growing concerned about the toll his job repairing heavy equipment in Arizona copper mines was taking on his health and well-being. So he decided to take the first step on his road to higher education at Central Arizona College before completing his degree at Arizona State University via the MyPath2ASU® program.
At CAC Jared found approachable professors with a passion for teaching and making difficult concepts easier to understand. Inspired by his father who was an electrical engineer, Jared also developed a strong interest in electrical engineering, making it his major and choosing ASU because of the innovative programs, experiential learning opportunities and support services that were especially helpful as a working parent. Jared learned how using MyPath2ASU would help to plan his transfer path term by term, saving him time and money while minimizing loss of credit.
