Three engineering professionals will share about their careers and journeys during the Engineering Careers Talk Series on November 16. The event will begin at 5 p.m. online and in person in room AS-102 on the Romeoville Campus.

Stefan Micic, senior new product development electrical engineer with G&W Electric Company, Dan Zapotoczny, software engineer on the F/A-18 mission systems program at Boeing, and Karolina Krzak, project engineer at J. A. Watts, Inc., will be the guest speakers.

Micic earned his B.Sc. and M.S. degrees from the University of Belgrade, Serbia. Throughout his career with G&W, Micic has held progressively responsible positions within the NPD team, including leading an international team of engineers and focusing on the development of underground and overhead switchgear systems. He has submitted and presented multiple papers at international conferences (CIRED) and is a co-inventor for a patent for high-voltage measurement systems.

Zapotoczny supports the design, implementation, and testing of software on the Sensors & Data Fusion ART. He previously worked as a data acquisition/test instrumentation & controls engineer co-op at CNH Industrial, where he supported data acquisition on driveline tests of various tractor models. He was also a reliability analysis intern at ComEd, where he supported data scientists in collecting and cleaning data on underground residential distribution cables. Zapotoczny received his B.S. in Computer Engineering & Computer Science as well as his M.S. in Computer Science, both from Lewis University.

Krzak is currently working with a woman-owned, certified DBE that provides owner’s representation, program management and construction management for public and private owners across the country. As a project engineer at J.W.I., Krzak coordinates and acts as the owner’s representative for all aspects and phases of multiple projects for complex, long-term programs. Krzak earned her B.S. in Computer Engineering from Lewis University.
