Before becoming a professor, Joshua Whittington developed and co-authored the first Mechatronics program in the state of Georgia. After the success of this program, THINC College and Career Academy requested his expertise in their Mechatronics department. Currently, he works for Wiregrass Georgia Technical College.
For the 2019 WorldSkills competition, Joshua looks forward to preparing Curt Love and Ryan Hittepole with an in-depth approach to Mechatronics. Having participated in SkillsUSA and WorldSkills competitions himself, Joshua understands what’s at stake.
“To be selected as an expert is an opportunity to give back and help competitors achieve their goals. Given the proper training, I’m confident this team will go further than teams ever have before.”
