Alex Plastrik

Credentials: B.S. 2022

Alex Plastrik got his first taste of engineering while growing up in Potomac, Maryland, while helping his dad do small projects in his workshop and around the house. His interest in power engineering comes from its potential to shape the world. “It is very relevant to many current issues,” Plastrik says, “especially those involving global warming and our dependence on fossil fuels.”

In his free time, Plastrik works as a supervisor at the Rathskeller restaurant in the Memorial Union and enjoys hiking and biking in the warm seasons and playing ice hockey in winter.

After graduating with an electrical engineering degree in May, he plans to work as a substation design engineer for Realtime Utility Engineers, a consulting company based in Fitchburg, Wisconsin.
