The Rise of Young Engineers

Everyone starts their engineering career at different places in life. 

Levi Zima, for example, got started at a very young age. His childhood was surrounded by technology. He even used Siemens’ CAD software Solid Edge at the age of seven. As he continued to grow up, he was given more and more opportunities to work in the engineering and wireless industries. Today, he’s a student at the University of Central Florida, currently studying RF and Microwave engineering. 

Throughout our conversation, Levi talks about his experiences with KidVenture, innovating new technologies for kids, and how his coursework connects with his internship at RF Laboratories.
