In Their Own Words...
Marco: Known as Marco Garcia, I moved to Canada from
Mexico six years ago, working in the painting industry, where I
provided services ranging from the purely residential to specialized industrial coatings. Back in Mexico, I used to make
sportswear, where I learned to operate and repair many types
of sewing machines. It has always has been a pleasure to use
tools of any kind, as I am mechanically inclined.
Before coming to Canada I was studying mechatronic engineering, and my dream has been always to become an engineer. So, once I had the chance to start a career I moved
in that direction. RDC was the obvious choice since I live in
Red Deer. Electrical Engineering Technology was the path I
took because my perspective is that eventually there will be
a shift in the way we produce and use energy, and electrical
power will be the preferred option. Even if I do not do that
for living, having a good understanding of electrical systems
will help a lot. I have no regrets about the time I spent in the
EET Program
I am in my earlies 40's with a lot of responsibilities, including a toddler that stole my heart the first moment we met. I
don't have time for many hobbies between working around
the house, my job, and my family, though sometimes I enjoy
visiting the gym and try to get in shape.
For now I am working on obtaining my certification as a
coatings inspector, though eventually I would like to continue my education and get an engineering degree.
Shaun: My name is Shaun Cameron, I am from Maple Creek,
Saskatchewan, where I graduated high school in 2004. I attended Valley City State University (VCSU) in North Dakota
to play on the school's baseball team on a partial academic
scholarship. After graduating from VCSU in 2009 with a BSc
in Business Management, I moved back to Saskatchewan,

and was given an opportunity in the oil and gas industry in
an unrelated field that I found both challenging and rewarding. Eight years later, I decided a change was needed.
After plenty of research into which career path would be
both rewarding and full of opportunities, I choose the Electrical Engineering Program at Red Deer College. It provided
the skills and knowledge to start my career, as well as smaller class sizes to allow better interaction with my instructors. I believe that the electrical field is an ever-changing
landscape that becomes a more important part of our lives
every day.
Away from work, I enjoy golfing, snowboarding, hiking, and
spending time with family and friends. I look forward to pursuing a challenging electrical career that will inspire me to
continue learning and improving my skills.
Jayden: My name is Jayden Mitchell and I am from Sylvan
Lake, AB. I went to school in Red Deer at Notre Dame High
School before going into college. I decided to choose instrumentation as my discipline because it was something
new RDC offered, and I chose RDC because it's close to
home, and because when I started the program, my sister
was there in her second year of Mechanical Engineering
Technology. My father was an instrumentation technologist
before changing careers, and I liked the idea of making a
living in instrumentation because so many things rely on the
technology we study and work with.
Working on this project was somewhat challenging due to
time conflicts since we had all three disciplines within our
group, and each program followed a different  schedule.
However our challenge was also a strength, since having
three disciplines helped us come up with different ideas
and solutions to build the best trainer possible. The other
challenge I faced personally was balancing academics and
