Dream Team Favors Big Red Engineers

Nebraska Advanced Manufacturing Coalition (NAMC) announced its 2007 Nebraska Career Dream Team in November, honoring 12 young professionals with several from UNL College of Engineering, including:

  • Max Porter, B.S. AGEN '07, a design engineer with Behlen Manufacturing Co.
  • Chad Essink, a December 2007 graduate with a B.S. in mechanical engineering, and now an intern with Square D/Schneider Electric.

The honorees lunched with Governor Dave Heineman at the governor's residence. "You represent our best and brightest," Heineman said. "It's important that you share your message about the great opportunities in Nebraska." The Dream Team members were also featured during Husker football pregame interviews on the Husker Sports Network.

The Career Dream Team members represent young adults who have had successful pathways to manufacturing and related careers. All were nominated by their companies as examples of talented individuals with outstanding education and skills for today's high-tech careers. Their presence promotes the NAMC's participation in the Dream It. Do It. campaign, highlighting skilled workforce opportunities in Nebraska.
