Aaron’s degree from BYU is in
Landscape Management, graduating in Fall 2021. When asked what his dream
job looks like, he did not hesitate to say, “Golf Course
Superintendent”. He rarely plays golf, but a golf course encompasses
landscaping/design, construction, and maintenance, covering all aspects
of his studies. Aaron’s degree and career path looked very different
right out of high school when he thought he would follow in his father’s
footsteps and head to medical school. After a few internships, pre-med
was not a good fit. He wanted to be outside. Working with landscape
contractors, he learned how to build a pond and install paver driveways
and patios. After his first class in Landscape Management, he knew
landscape design/build & maintenance was his future.
When Collin started looking at colleges, he was impressed with the
culture at BYU. Throughout his high school years, he was intrigued by
audio (sound systems) and engineering. However, BYU did not have a degree
in engineering. Looking through the curriculum, he thought Landscape
Management looked interesting and decided to give it a try. Collin will
graduate in Fall 2021 with a degree in Landscape Management. He has had
three internships in other parts of the country, working in landscape
construction, irrigation, and maintenance. He realized he could bring his
passion for audio systems into the landscape. He is an advocate for
designing smart (technology) systems into clients’ landscape designs,
such as home theaters, TVs, lighting, and speakers.
