Andrew Borsi, 2013 completer of the Engineering Academy, returned on September 24, 2019 to present to the students about Nuclear Engineering. He graduated from the University of Akron with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering in 2018. Andrew began working at FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company (FENOC) in 2015, leading projects in developing state-of-the-art risk-informed applications, ultimately reducing operating costs and regulatory burdens while improving nuclear safety margins. His presentation to the Engineering Academy included the process of Nuclear Engineering, as well as the industry standards, including safety. Andrew shared his educational path, including his studies in the Academy, his transition to University of Akron, and his journey toward a career at FirstEnergy. He says, “The Engineering Academy provided me with the tools I needed to succeed in my college career. The most important of those skills was technical writing, which I have come to learn is the most important aspect of engineering activities: writing things down. Being introduced to multiple engineering disciplines helped point me in the right direction when I chose a college major and even helped me when faced with problems outside the academic realm.”
