Architectural Design Technology Alum Rucker Grows in Job
Shortly after graduating in May 2021 with an Architectural Design Technology A.A.S. degree, William Rucker began his career journey at Enfinity Engineering in Brentwood, where he designs plumbing systems for the firm’s hospital clients.
His passion for design stems from his interest to understand the innerworkings of a home, saying “It teaches you about your home. I can see the structure of a building in my head.”
In his desire for a full and interesting life, William wants “to learn as much as I can. …I want to put myself in a better position to experience more in life.”
When asked if his classes prepared him for a professional setting, he remarked, “The programs I used while I was at Nashville State are the same that I use in my career.”
While at Nashville State, William used the Tennessee Reconnect grant to pay his tuition. As he neared graduation, William worked with Nashville State’s Career Services, who kept him posted about job opportunities in his career field and scheduled meetings with potential employers, while helping to polish his résumé.
William plans to continue sinking his teeth into and growing in his new job. Your alma mater is rooting hard for you, William! Remember, you are #NashvilleStateStrong.
