Welcome to my wonderful, little piece of virtual real estate!

Hello! My name is Wiliam Jarratt and I am currently in my first year at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. The majors I have chosen are Physics and Electrical Engineering. I gained a strong interest in Physics while working with and learning about reactors in the United States Navy. Also, since I began taking electronic courses in high school, I have had an interest in electronic circuits and their design.

My current job is being a full time student at UNCW. In high school I bathed, groomed and took care of dogs and cats at a kennel. After high school, I joined the United States Navy and spent five years working on mechanical systems that directly and indirectly interface with the reactors on US Navy Ships (Aircraft Carriers). After leaving the US Navy, I spent two years working as an electrician at a saw mill. I did a little bit of everything as an electrician. I installed, maintained and repaired motors and distribution systems and their associated control systems. I also was responsible for maintaining and updating the programming used throughout the plant (RSLogix 5,500,5000). I am satisfied with the experience and knowledge I have accumulated over seven years, and now feel like I am mentally and financially prepared to begin a higher education, which is why I am where I am now. I do not have a dream job yet, but hopefully while learning more about Physics and Electrical Engineering, I will discover it.
