Ted J. Wierzba[edit]

Hello. I am T.J. Wierzba and I completed my Associate's degree at Northcentral Technical College in Wausau Wisconsin as well as earned a MEM (Manufacturing Electronics Maintenance) certificate and I am continuing my education at Michigan Technological University in Houghton Michigan for my Bachelor's degree. I have experience running laser cutters/engravers, 3D printers, and various other machines within a machine shop.


My interests range from electronics and electronic components, robotics, programing(pbasic/C+), and in sustainable energy as well as energy storage. I have not conducted any research as of yet, but i do plan on doing some research while enrolled here at MTU.


My main goal is to further my education by completing my Bachelor's degree and continue even further to my Master's and beyond if I am able to afford it.

This being my first year after transferring to MTU, I was lucky enough to get into the FAR (Fall Academic Research) program here at MTU. So I am required to obtain a mentor that will be able to guide me along the path of conducting research and write a research proposal and the end of my first semester. I found this to be a great opportunity to get some research experience, albeit its only the proposal that is required. I hope to win SURF (Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship) support to conduct the research outlined within the FAR program proposal. If not, it will have still been a good experience to learn.

Obtaining an internship would also be very beneficial to my career/experience. Having went to the KRC (Keweenaw Research Center) and hearing about everything they do up there has gotten me very interested in internships.
