As the College of Technology’s December 2011 graduates complete their time at Purdue, we are profiling a few and finding out their future plans and how they arrived at this point in their lives. Commencement is December 18, 2011.
- Bachelor’s degree in aviation management with a concentration in airline management
This position requires me to teach oral English communication for CAUC’s Flight College.
Purdue classes that helped Devin for his job:
All of my classes have given me the experience and skills to teach oral English communication in an aviation setting. Listed below are the top classes that have helped prepare me for my job at CUAC:
- AT590 – Special Problems in Aviation Technology, a graduate class taught by Professor Schreckengast
- AT475 – Aviation Law
- AT400 – Aviation Professional Issues
- COM114 – Fundamentals of Speech Communication
- COM315 – Speech Communication of Technical Information
Other ways the College of Technology and/or Purdue provided preparation and assistance
- Purdue has taught me the value of a good education. This mentality will help me excel at being an instructor.
- The ability to write technical reports and explain technical concepts clearly.
- Professor Lu and master’s student Steven Leib have made this teaching opportunity at CAUC possible. With their insight on China and its Civil Aviation University, I feel confident and reassured about my time over there.
Thanks go to:
- My family: for the love and support they have given me throughout my life. Without them, my accomplishments would not have been possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to follow my passions.
- The aviation faculty: for giving me the drive and support to start on the road to making my career dreams a reality. They have shown me how important an education can be and the opportunities that can arise from it.
- My friends: for supporting me in my educational endeavors even though they were not granted the same opportunities as myself. Thank you, guys.
