About Me[edit]

Me backpacking in the Trinity Alps

My name is Chet Jamgochian. This is my fourth year as an environmental engineering undergrad at Humboldt State University. I am hoping to graduate in spring of 2014.

I am minoring in appropriate technology.

This semester (fall 2012) the classes I am taking are: technology and the environment, thermodynamics, systems, Intro to GIS, and electronics.

In my free time I love to backpack and/or surf.

Interests in Engineering[edit]

  • Wind Energy
  • Wave Energy
  • Solar Energy
  • Sustainable Living
  • Creating an improved electrical grid
  • Water Systems
    • Both drinking and waste water.

Experience with technology and/or the environment[edit]

I have always had a strong interest in sustainability and the technology available for pursuing a sustainable lifestyle.

Last summer I worked at Earthly Edibles, an organic farm in Korbel Ca.

I am currently a docent at SHATZ Energy Research Center (SERC)

I worked with Humboldt Bay Keepers and the Natural Resource defense council to spread awareness and educate the public about the importance of the Marine Life Protection Act.

Last semester I worked on a project analyzing the storm water runoff on the upper Campbell Creek watershed. This project was submitted to the City of Arcata to help with the storm water permitting process. The class was ENGR 351 water quality and environmental health.

I have also taken many classes that relate to technology and the environment.
