Caliente would like to congratulate our project engineer Andrew Gorman on graduating from ASU’s Ira’s A. Fulton School of Engineering with a Bachelor’s in Construction Management and Technology. Andrew joined Caliente as an intern in 2018 and transitioned to a project engineer in 2019. Here are a few things he had to say about his experience and where he wants to go next.
Why did you choose your degree?
My Grandfather was a mechanical engineer, my father was an architect, and both had the love of woodworking. I always enjoyed building things with my hands, and they passed that down to me. So, it’s kind of like staying in the same vein as the family business.
Describe your most rewarding college experience.
All of it, really. I worked throughout my time in school, so I learned a lot about time management and how to manage the various systems in my life. It also taught me about adversity, especially as the ‘COVID-Class’ as we were deemed, and how to rise above to succeed in my goals.
What do you look forward to most post-college?
I look forward to learning more about my professional self after the college experience and putting my hard-earned skills to use. Eventually, I would like to go back to school for my second degree in Sustainability within the construction scope.
Can you share a few words about your experience at ASU?
“The ASU school of construction gave me new ideas and the passion to pursue them.”
Can you share a few things about your experience at Caliente?
Caliente feels like a company where I can work, at my pace. I don’t feel pressured by peers. Caliente has a remarkable atmosphere of working together, everyone has taken the time to help their neighbor when they are in need. I’m grateful to Caliente for all the company has taught me so far. I’m ecstatic to continue learning and becoming more involved in Caliente.
