Position title: Owner & Managing Engineer Jetpack Engineering; MEM Advisory Board Chair 2021-2023
Dan Winter created Jetpack Engineering as a way to apply his diverse engineering skills to today’s energy problems, while working in a flexible format. This flexibility also allows him to contribute to MEM by being a part time lecturer in Technical Project Management (TPM).
In 2008, he graduated from UW–Platteville with a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering, followed in 2012 with a Masters of Engineering in Professional Practice from UW–Madison. He earned his first PE in 2013.
In his spare time, he trains for Ironman triathlons, SCUBA diving, and putters in his woodshop with his two sons. He is also an Assistant Den Leader for each of his sons and an active member of Pack 350 in Oregon WI.
He regularly contributes to the UW-Platteville's Electrical Engineering Alumni Advisory board. His experience in UW’s Master of Engineering Management helped shape him professionally and personally. He joined the advisory board as a way to give back to the memory of Wayne Pferdehirt—a knowledgeable teacher, an infectious leader, and friend. On Wisconsin!
