Mr. Manuel Mira

"Going for a Master's degree in Technology was one of the most exciting experiences of my long life. A very cooperative environment made my graduate student career a success. The knowledge acquired, enabled me to tae a more active part in the R&D department of TekTone, a manufacturer of Nurse Call systems in Franklin, thus becoming lifetime employable not a lifetime employee. The different projects taken in class were also considered helpful for the company operations. The TekTone management congratulates the WCU Kimmel School Graduate Studies for their efforts in working together wit local industries. The School program helps in the creation of new and better jobs. Congratulations."

"Graduation from the MS in Technology program came and went. I looked at the endless possibilities of where I could go and started applying for good positions at distinguished companies. A door opened and I accepted an offer from Eaton Corporation--Electrical Division as an OEM Inside Sales Engineer. I'm currently working at Eaton and the possibilities are still endless with the experiences from Western's engineering technology programs backing me up."
