Tengfei Shi is a 17-year-old KCC student from China pursuing studies in the field of Natural Sciences. Shi’s decision in coming to Hawaiʻi was due to his parent’s wishes for him to study in the islands. He said that he’s always had an interest for the science and engineering field, sharing that he hopes to find a career in architectural engineering.
To pursue this dream, Shi will be moving to Los Angeles in Spring 2019 to study architecture. Shi is still deciding between enrolling at Pasadena City College or East Los Angeles College.Read More
- Cassidy SiegristCassidy "Cass" Siegrist is approaching his second year at Windward Community College (WCC) student while taking classes at KCC to fulfill his pre-engineering credits. Siegrist hails from Philadelphia but has lived in a number of states and countries throughout his service in the military. After getting out of the air force Siegrist moved to Hawai'i, which is where he has been for the past six years and currently resides in Kalihi. What inspired Siegrist to get back into school was his newfound hobby of creating lightsabers. Siegrist figured that besides teaching himself the basics behind micro-controller in order to program his realistic lightsabers, he might as well learn more about the field of electrical engineering through school. For the past six weeks Siegrist got involved in Pre-engineering Education Collaborative II (PEEC II) program which was hosted on KCC's campus. This coming Fall semester, Siegrist will still be in circulation on campus as he attends a physics course taught by professor Aaron Hanai.
