Castleberry engineering his future

POSTED: May 12, 2013 12:01 a.m.

Jeremiah Castleberry is planning to give every aspect of the engineering field a try.

Although he has no specific plans for what he will use the skills for, he plans to explore material, chemical and mechanical engineering after graduation, he said.

“I just want to have a job that I can enjoy,” Castleberry said. “(In 10 years) I would like to have a job that I could hold as a career.”

Castleberry, a senior at North Georgia Christian School in Flowery Branch, has also been developing skills for welding and is in Lanier Tech’s dual enrollment program. He will start college with a two-year technical degree in welding already under his belt.

He will be attending the University of North Georgia in Dahlonega and participate in the university’s dual engineering degree program with Georgia Tech.

His fascination with engineering started at an early age.

“I’ve always had an interest in it,” Castleberry said. “Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve always loved thinking about spacecraft and all that. It just kind of was natural.”

The dual enrollment program at Lanier Tech was something Castleberry initiated since his father is a welder.

“On his own, he was self-motivated to do this, and I am very proud of him sticking with it,” said Karen Castleberry, Jeremiah’s mother.

He said he will use the degree in welding as a backup plan, but it will also prove useful as a skill set to use with mechanical engineering.

Castleberry said for now he is most interested in chemical engineering. He plans to major in chemistry.

After graduation from the University of North Georgia, he will focus more on choosing a specific engineering program at Georgia Tech.
