My name is Adam Disque and I am the currently serving president of Texas Tech University’s Forum Chapter of Mortar Board. I am a senior within the 5-year Environmental Engineering program. I am originally from Wylie Texas, located north east of Dallas. While at Texas Tech, I have been involved in a multitude of student organizations which have all attributed to my personal and professional success. I have served multiple terms as an Engineering senator within the Student Government Association, and was previously the president of the Veteran’s Association, located at Texas Tech.
My personal impact on Texas Tech has been primarily focused on veteran integration into higher education. With the support from my spouse, we have helped stand up a veteran and non-traditional student affairs position within student government and resurrected the college of engineering’s engagement with student veterans to name a few.
Prior to attending Texas Tech University, I was stationed at Dyess Air Force Base as an enlisted airman. The experiences I gained from my military career as a Bioenvironmental Engineer are what I attribute to my decision to pursue Environmental Engineering.
As an Environmental Engineering major, I have held three summer internships. As an intern with General Dynamics, Ordinance and Tactical Systems, I spent one summer as an Environmental Safety and Health Intern where I worked to assist in factory-wide audits. I chose to return to General Dynamics my second summer to work as an Environmental engineering Intern where I was tasked with developing and improving existing waste treatment processes. My most recent internship experience was with Raytheon Missile Systems, where I worked as a Process Engineering Intern.
As I get closer to graduation, I am looking forward to either commissioning as an officer in the United States Air Force or furthering my career as an Environmental Engineer with one of the companies I have interned with.
