It was a VHS player that aroused Paul Haynes’ curiosity.

“I first became interested in engineering when I had the chance to disassemble a VHS player with my father, an electrical engineer,” he said.

He selected College of DuPage because the cost of tuition was lower than other schools. But he’s gaining so much more as he works toward his goal of getting into the University of Illinois Engineering program.

“It is definitely a good idea to attend COD if you are not sure what you want to be,” he said. “For me, it’s the presentations from professional speakers and the knowledge each advisor has about what is needed in the industry that is helping me toward meeting my goals.”
