Brooke Wirth’s path to a career as a CAD designer took quite a few turns along the way. After high school, she decided to enroll in the nursing program at Northwest State. Then she moved away, returned home and picked back up at NSCC where she discovered her aptitude for engineering. The faculty and staff at NSCC helped Brooke transition from an undecided student to a mechanical engineering major, and she graduated in 2017. Brooke credits her education and hands-on training for helping her find success as a CAD designer at Bard Manufacturing in Bryan.
