Former student comes back to talk engineering

Former Humboldt student Matt Rasmussen (pointing to graphic) was back in town last week to talk to engineering students about preparing for college and the work world. Rasmussen is a design engineer for Garmin, a leader in navigation communications instruments. Humboldt Independent photo.

Humboldt High School engineering students had a bonus visit from a former student last Tuesday, March 5.
Adam Rasmussen, a 2006 graduate of Humboldt High School and a 2010 electrical engineering graduate from Iowa State University, met with the classes to discuss his job with Garmin in Kansas City.
The son of Kevin and Lisa Rasmussen interned for both Rockwell Collins and Garmin while in college and went to work for Garmin right out of college. He is currently a design engineer on Garmin’s fitness team. He’s assisted with the development of such Garmin products as the Edge, Forerunner and ForerunnerXT.
“My high school classes helped because I challenged myself. If you take the bare minimum, you won’t be prepared for college,” Rasmussen said. “Challenge yourself right now with the classes you take in high school so college won’t be such a big jump for you. Then challenge yourself in college so you’ll be ready for the real world.”
