For the past two years, Mr. Martin, head of The Martin Luther King High School (King) engineering department, has invited alumni of the program to come back and connect with current students of engineering. On Wednesday Dec. 20th, alumni from colleges all across the Inland Empire, including San Diego State University and Riverside Community College shared their knowledge. The alumni fields of interest ranged from mechanical, bio, aerospace, computer, civil, electrical, and chemical engineering. T.C. Wilson, a 2014 graduate commented that the program at King “definitely prepared him for his first two years of college.” So much so that many of the classes he took in college were similar to the classes he took at King. Another alumni, Josh, remarked that prior to taking classes at King he never even considered a career in the engineering field.
