February 6th, 2015—When Jerry Simshauser was at Rochelle Township High School, like many teens, he was interested in computers — how they work, software, hard drives, and gaming. When he entered Kishwaukee College after graduating in 2011 from RTHS, he was still interested in computers but he wasn't in the Computer Information Sciences Program. He entered the Automotive Technology Program instead. "I chose automotive over computer science because there was greater amount of hands-on work," he said. "And I had a deep interest in modern automotive electronics, including OBD2 systems, multiple computer modules, and scan tool communication." Today, Jerry is preparing to graduate from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale (SIU-C) with a B.S. in Automotive Technology.  Full Article
