Keith chose Vermont Tech because “I fell in love with the campus when I visited. The course offerings were in line with what I was wanting to study, it was close enough to home that I could still visit my family if I wanted to, and I also liked the smaller class sizes and career driven curriculum.” Keith decided to get his associate degree in Architectural & Building Engineering Technology and graduated in 2003.
Keith was very engaged on campus as he stated, “I was involved with the club ice hockey team for two out of my three years living on campus. I also served as President/Captain my junior year and played club baseball the spring of my sophomore year. Additionally, I did intramural flag football and softball all 3 years I lived on campus.” You can visit our Student Life page to learn about clubs, intramurals, and more.
His time at Vermont Tech, you could also find Keith in the drafting labs as he stated, “My first couple years on campus consisted of a lot of hand drafting.” He noted, “The way Vermont Tech structures their courses are what sets it apart. Career driven curriculum allows students to be ready for what lies ahead post-graduation. Tech’s job placement rate is unrivaled!” Vermont Tech has a 99% placement rate and is ranked #1 in Vermont for Return on Investment (ROI). Keith said, “Vermont Tech grads are in high demand and it was my association with Vermont Tech that help me to land at Engineering Ventures. I am most proud of these things as an alum!”
Currently, Keith is employed at Engineering Ventures, PC as a Structural Engineer Designer. Starting in May of 2006, Keith explained, “I would not be where I am today, professionally, if not for my time at and affiliation with Vermont Tech. It got my foot in the door at Engineering Ventures and allowed me to have a technical preparedness for what was to become a great career. I left campus after my junior year – I was completely burned out with school – and after a couple months of employment with EV everything I learned at Tech started to click. I re-enrolled, part-time, was welcomed back with open arms and finished my bachelor’s degree. Threading a learning environment with real-life experiences is what makes Vermont Tech unique!” Keith earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Architectural Engineering Technology in 2009.
Keith is married to a Lyndon State alum, Danielle and have welcomed their first son, Mason, born February of 2013 and their second son, Bennett, born on December of 2017.
