Ali Weaver, CLASS 0f 2016

Plastics Engineering Technology

Ali Weaver admits she wasn’t sure about the path she wanted to take for her life. After graduating high school, she went away to college to study literature and then took a couple of years off school before discovering the Plastics Engineering Technology program at Shawnee State.

Here, she has gotten the chance to gain hands-on experience, work with companies to test materials that are being used to make real products, build models using 3D printing, and even design a toy airplane with her classmates as a fun project.

She just graduated from Shawnee State and has been offered a full-tuition scholarship and graduate assistant stipend to work on her master’s degree in industrial engineering. She doesn’t plan to stop there and wants to pursue a doctorate program in the future. 

She knows she’s well-prepared. She’s in demand. And, her degree from Shawnee State provides her with endless opportunities.
