Ray Selman

Current or most recent title and employer?
CAD Operator – DTE Energy

How did SC4 help prepare you?
After moving to the area for a new job in December of 2019, Covid shut us down and I was laid off in March 2020. While figuring out what I wanted to do, I remembered I had the GI Bill that I had not used. I had a background in tool and die, so I decided to take the engineering graphics/CAD degree program. That got me into DTE as a co-op in May of 2022, and I was hired full-time in October of 2022.

What do you like most about what you do professionally?
I draw gas transmission piping for our northern customers. I enjoy working from home four days a week, as well as the flexibility to finish my degree at SC4 in May of 2023. DTE is a great company to grow with and share information amongst groups. It truly is the best organization I have ever been a part of.

Did you transfer on and earn other degrees? If so, what degrees and from where?
After I graduate in May of 2023, I am enrolling at Central Michigan University for their online organizational leadership bachelor program.
