Half-way through her education, Camosun electronics student Kylee Lothrop will be able to put her $2500 scholarship to good use. Lothrop was one of three BC post-secondary students to receive the BC Technology Industry Association scholarship (pdf), presented at the BCTIA’s annual Technology Impact Awards dinner held in Vancouver Thursday, June 11, 2008.
After graduating with a diploma in Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology, Lothrop is now enrolled in Camosun’s six-month Engineering Bridge program, which will allow her to transfer directly into third year studies in UVic’s Electrical Engineering degree program.
“I chose Camosun’s Electronics program because I was interested in renewable energy resources,” explains Lothrop. “The knowledge and skills I’ve gained at Camosun gave me a much better idea about what that means and I’m even more interested than ever now.”
As a scholarship recipient, Lothrop was part of the BCTIA Winners’ Circle, giving her an opportunity to network with corporate leaders within BC’s technology industry. “I got a couple job offers while I was there,” smiled Lothrop. “The idea of jumping into my career right now is very tempting, but I really do want to finish my degree first.”
Lothrop is no stranger to the world of work. As a full-time electronics student she also maintained part-time employment as a technician with TC-Helicon, and did her two co-op work terms at the Department of National Defence. In May 2008 Lothrop also won the Queale / Interior Electronics Award for Electronics & Computer Engineering Co-op Students, sponsored by Queale Electronics Ltd.
