After I graduate from Orting High School, I will further my education in order to become an Environmental Engineer. This is a uniquely gratifying and progressive career. Furthermore, as an Environmental Engineer, I will be working in a leadership position while truly impacting the world in a positive and creative manner. After I successfully complete the required education and training, the opportunities in environmental engineering are endless, and I am thrilled to finally have the opportunity to begin working on entering such a career path.
The education necessary to excel in this field is rigorous and slightly lengthy, but will be brief when my ultimate goals, aspirations, and love for the math and science subjects are taken into consideration. My first path for extended education after graduating is attending Pierce Community College. Here I will attain my Associate of Science Degree, and I will focus my studies on their Track Two option. “The Associate of Science degree (AS-T) is designed for students who plan to transfer to science programs at four-year institutions after completing the first two years of study at Pierce. The degree enables students to fulfill the undergraduate general education requirements of most four-year science degree programs.”(http://www.pierce.ctc.edu/dist/degree/as#track2). I will apply myself to their Track Two option because it is meant “For Science Pre-Majors in Engineering, Computer Science, Physics and Atmospheric Sciences.”(http://www.pierce.ctc.edu/dist/degree/as#track2). This course requires 93 credits, which is equal to 6.2 quarters. With this in mind, it will take about 1.75 years to finish. Various classes will be taken including Calculus I, II, and III, Physics I, II,and III, Humanities, General Chemistry, and English Composition. Upon completion of my time at Pierce College, I will transfer into the Civil and Environmental Engineering Program offered at the University of Washington. “The Bachelor of Science in...
