Parker Kingsford: Future Computer Engineer
Occupational Goal: Computer Engineer
“I have felt great interest in becoming a computer engineer since I started working with computers at the age of 10. I love technology and engineering, to solve and fix problems. I like to design new computer systems that can be more effective in day-to-day life. Becoming a computer engineer would incorporate some of my greatest passions and joys in life.
“I am currently attending Canyons Technical Education Center (CTEC) in Sandy, Utah. I am enrolled in the Computer Repair and Network System course. This program has helped me earn many industry-level certifications including: CompTIA, IT Strata Fundamentals, IC3, Microsoft Technical Associate (MTA), OS Fundamentals, and Security and Academy of Information Technology certifications. At CTEC, I was recently recognized as the most outstanding PC repairman for the first semester.”
