  • Class of: 2018
  • Email: jarod.morgan781@tamu.edu
  • Howdy! My name is Jarod Morgan and I am an Electrical Engineer major from Sulphur Springs, TX. As a young boy I was fascinated with anything mechanical. In particular, I was curious about cars and what made them work. Once I turned sixteen and received my first vehicle I was excited to finally explore everything about it. Being that it was a used vehicle it came in far from perfect condition, with issues constantly arising. As I diagnosed and found solutions to each problem my love for the knowledge of how a certain system works only intensified. The long hours of troubleshooting simple problems and finding solutions was challenging, but the feeling of accomplishment was irreplaceable. During this time my knowledge of electronics and combustible engines grew, and the need for a fundamental explanation directed me to science and mathematics at Texas A&M University. Eventually I found my real love for solving problems within electrical systems and chose to be an Electrical Engineer.
