Hey Future Vols!
My name is Kami Reid, and I am a senior majoring in Civil Engineering! I am from Seymour, TN which is a short 25-minute drive from campus. I grew up loving the Vols, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to now represent the Tickle College of Engineering as an Outreach Ambassador!
I knew I wanted to come to UTK to major in engineering after attending a Society of Women Engineers outreach event. There, I learned about all the majors within the college, and I knew exactly what I wanted to study – civil and environmental! I plan to concentrate in structures and construction during my senior year. I hope to one day work in design.
On campus, I serve as the Outreach Ambassador for the UTK American Society of Civil Engineers Student Chapter. Being involved on campus is a great way to make both personal and professional connections, and ASCE has been one of the highlights of my college experience. I have also worked as an undergrad research assistant in the High Bay Lab that focuses on structures and for SDS as a note taker.
This past summer, I interned in downtown Knoxville at Haines Structural Group. I was able to gain more experience within my major and learn a lot more about what opportunities are available after graduation.
Thank you so much for giving me some of your time while reading my bio! Please reach out if you have any questions. I hope to see you on Rocky Top soon. Go Vols!
