Rob Rogers joined the Georgia Tech Center for Career Discovery and Development in 2003, after having worked at the Steinbright Career Development Center at Drexel University.
Mr. Rogers received his BA degree in Sociology from Rutgers University-Camden and his MA degree in Liberal Arts from Clayton State University. He is an active member of the Southeastern Regional Cooperative Education Conference, the American Society of Engineering Education, where he is the current Secretary and member of the Cooperative & Experiential Education Division.
In his opinion, experiential education is an excellent way for a student to compliment classroom theory with real-world work experience to enhance their education. Rob believes that the keys to truly understanding how work works is by utilizing all of the resources that are provided to the student through C2D2, being persistent, being proactive and maintaining a strong relationship with their C2D2 advisor.
Undergraduate students majoring in Architecture, Biomedical Engineering, Building Construction, Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computational Media, Computer Science, Environmental Engineering, Industrial Design, Materials Science & Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Music Technology are assigned to Mr. Rogers.
