Nick Hann discusses impact of CCAA
Posted on 10/26/2020
     Nick Hann is a graduated senior from the Environmental Engineering pathway in the Academy of Advanced Technology and Design at NIHF STEM High School. Besides being an avid mountain biker and skiing enthusiast, Nick is in the National Honors Society as well as the STEM Ambassador program. Nick has always had a passion for engineering, but did not want to limit himself to one discipline before he was truly inspired and prepared. The Environmental Engineering pathway gave Nick the opportunity to expand his horizons and find his true passion.
There are a multitude of opportunities Nick has been able to participate in through the connections he made in his pathway. Nick has had the opportunity to shadow engineers at the Welty Building Company, where he observed the various facets of the company's operations. Near the internships conclusion, Nick created a presentation elaborating on each component of the business that was  vigorously commended by his co-workers and leadership alike. Later on, Nick got involved with Terry Malone, an engineer with FirstEnergy. They are currently collaborating on a project involving converting sound waves into usable energy. This opportunity taught Nick the importance of versatility in his profession and how to adapt to the immediate environment. From the ability to adapt critical thought to testing his technical ability, Nick began to culminate these individual disciplines into a skill set that prepares him for future success.
With the support of his instructors and business partners, Nick has acquired the tools needed to excel as an environmental engineer. His internship opportunities and various extracurricular activities have enhanced Nick’s ability to properly communicate and collaborate with his peers. Nick plans to attend the University of Cincinnati in the fall for a Biomedical undergraduate with a masters in mechanical engineering. College and Career Academies gave Nick the insight and soft skills to pursue a path of excellence.
