Kyle Crosby |Engineering Intern

Kyle joins the Apex, North Carolina office as an Intern working with the Arc Flash team.  He is currently a student at Wake Technical College on the path towards a career in Engineering.

"I first learned about electrical engineering in my sophomore year of high school. My friend was on the robotics team and took me to one of the competitions and I thought it was just amazing. FIRST Robotics had kids all over the world building robots and competing to complete challenges. I had to get involved so I joined my junior year of high school and that’s where I started to learn how to wire a machine and I had a fun time learning and powering a robot I help build by hand. I helped build it again my senior year of high school. Then one of the mentors of the robotics team told me that I might want to go to school for engineering.  I saw that electrical engineering was a sub category of engineering so I thought that would be the best course of action for my future. One thing I was always told no matter where you go is that internships are the best way to learn and get your foot into the door of anything you want to do. I was very lucky that Hallam-ICS was looking for one. So, I didn’t waste any time trying to get that internship. At the time of writing this I’ve been working at Hallam-ICS for 1 month now and honestly its nothing like I expected at all. Hallam-ICS is by far more like a family than I would have expected. I’m learning something new every day; always learning new techniques and tricks that I wouldn’t learn in a classroom."
