"I live in Madison, SD and commute to Brookings to work at Daktronics. When “Dak” asked me to go back to school I had no idea how I would accomplish that. I was petrified. The online E-degree program at Lake Area Tech allowed me to do it. My work week consisted of four 10-hour days, and I would go to school on the last day of the week to complete my labs. Ninety percent of the school work was completed from home. It was a perfect fit for me, being employed full time, married and a father.
The support I received from the Robotics Department was outstanding. They were completely open to my situation and the challenges of balancing work, school and home life. I stayed in touch through email, texting and phone calls. Occasionally, when I wasn’t quite “getting the point” my instructor would make these video explanations and email them to me. It was awesome! I had an incredible amount of support.
Having this degree will allow me to be advanced here at Daktronics, as well as provide other opportunities at other employers. I have often recommended this program to people I meet who are thinking about going back to school, and are unsure of how to do it."
