Hello Blog, I’m Tom Wineland

I enjoy movies and hanging out with friends.  I’m close with my mother and father, I have a 6 month old daughter.  I’m From Overland Park.  My major could be Mechanical, or maybe Industrial.  I’m not really sure right now, which is the main reason I am taking this class.  In 5 to 10 years I would Hopefully have a Steady high paying job and I own my own place free and clear with no debt at all.  None of this is very likely, but a guy can dream.  I hope this class provides some insight into what being an Engineer would really be like, and how successful I could be at it.

Hello Blog, I’m Ben Cardiff


     I am Ben Cardiff.  I was born in Wichita, Ks in September of 1979.  I grew up in Independence, Mo from the age of two on.  After graduating high school in 1998 I joined the U.S. Navy.  I did five years active duty and worked on: hydraulics, pneumatics, mechanics, and robotics.  I had to learn to read blueprints and schematics and understand mil-spec technical publications.  I enjoy working on cars, fishing, and hunting in my leisure time.  That is when I get any spare time.  Between working full time, going to school full time and family I have very little spare time. I have four kids ages between one and ten, two girls and two boys.  I was going back and forth between mechanical and electrical engineering.  I have hopes that this class will help me narrow down which degree to pursue.  Within the next five years I plan to be working as an engineer outside of aircraft.  I do not want to work in aircraft because of the ups and downs and always worrying about whether or not I will have a job in the next year.
