Cody Gabriel

Program: Electrical Engineering

When Cody Gabriel started at CCC after two tours of duty in Iraq, his math skills were rusty. His first math class was an entry-level algebra course. This spring, he's earning his bachelor's degree in electrical engineering.

How did he get started on his education and training for a high-demand career? With help from CCC and veterans services.

Cody excelled in math and soon was helping tutor other students. He enrolled in his first physics class at CCC. "I fell in love with physics. It really clicked with me," says Cody. "Physics and math go hand in hand, so studying engineering was the next step. I had found what I wanted to do." With a clear career path, Cody took CCC classes that would help him get into an engineering program at a university.

Cody transferred to PSU and is close to completing a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. He's president of the National Electrical and Computer Engineering Honor Society and runs the tutoring program for PSU's Electrical Engineering Department. 

What is Cody's next step?  Finding an internship and his dream job: working in radio frequency engineering.

CCC is helping many students like Cody get the education and training they need to pursue a high-demand career.
