Artifacts

The Engineering Expo was announced in my Fundamentals of Engineering class. I was initially uncertain if I wanted to participate because I did not think employers would be interested in employing freshman but decided to go nevertheless because I figured it be worth going and getting experience. This felt out of my comfort zone cause I’d never dealt with this type of situation before and it was new and daunting. However, once I started talking to Honda, the first employer I approached, I realized I was very comfortable talking to people and had soft skills developed that aren’t taught in the classroom. By talking to employers I became even more confident and even though many didn’t want a freshman to intern for them I at least had the experience of communicating professionally. One employer that stood out was GE Aviation, they informed me that they wanted underclassman for interns to train them from early on in college education. I was thrilled to hear this because their company has always interested me and I plan to apply for a co-op or internship with them soon.

About Me

Hello! My name is Zachary M. Art, I am a first-year Aerospace Engineering student. I grew up in North Canton, Ohio and lived there my whole life until coming to The Ohio State University. I’m very excited to be a part of such an amazing university and can’t wait to make my dreams a reality. Ever since I was a kid I always have loved space and anything that flies. I remember when the space shuttle was still being used I would watch the launches live and be so amazed about what humanity has achieved. This interest has led me to pursue a degree in Aerospace Engineering where I can apply the math and science concepts I’ve learned to better mankind and make a better future.

As far as organizations and clubs on campus go, I am involved in the Buckeye Space Launch Initiative, Archery Club, Running Club and the STEM EE Scholars program.
