Credentials: B.S. 2022
William Weis of Richfield, Wisconsin, always had a fascination with electric motors and believed that he could use technology to make a positive impact on the world, which led him into engineering. “But I really got captivated by power engineering after taking introductory courses with WEMPEC researcher Pia Strampp, who showed all the potential in the field of power engineering,” he says. “All of the other courses after reaffirmed that I made the correct choice in career field.”
In the summer of 2021, he held an internship at Simple Innovations, an electronic engineering company that works on microelectronics as well as circuit and product design. There he got hands-on experience debugging products, soldering, testing circuit boards and prototyping electrical products.
Currently, he works part time in the marketing department of a mortgage company and likes to spend his free time outdoors, exercising, reading and hanging out with friends.
Weis expects to graduate in May with an electrical engineering degree before beginning work for Milwaukee Tool in Brookfield, Wisconsin, on the drilling, driving and fastening team.
