Rear Admiral Shares Engineering Experiences with Penn State York Students
More than 70 Penn State York students, mostly engineering majors, gathered recently to hear Rear Adm. Scott A. Weikert, Deputy Commander, 1st Naval Construction Division, speak about the role engineering plays in the United States Navy. Weikert shared his career experiences and background and answered questions following the hour-long presentation at the campus.
Weikert encouraged students to pursue their goals in engineering and reminded them that the military and the federal government offer challenging careers. Weikert, a York native, earned a master’s degree in business administration from Penn State, and an undergraduate degree in engineering from Drexel University.
