Matt Stoel


Electrical Engineering



What are your career goals?

My career goal following graduation is to land a job in South Dakota within the power engineering industry. I hope to stay working for the same company for many years and eventually move into a management position. 

How does education help you reach your goals and aspirations?

I dream of a world in which we no longer have to rely on fossil fuels as our main source of energy, but that we may rely on renewable energy sources instead. As an Electrical Engineer with an emphasis in Power Systems, I would be able to play a critical role in design and implementation of these renewable systems.

How do scholarships impact your experience at SDSU and your future?

Scholarships enhance my college experience by alleviating some of the stress about money that comes along with attending college. As a result, I'm able to spend less time worrying about finances and more time studying.
