As a young boy, the “toy” Jordon Gilmore most wanted was a microscope or a chemistry set. His love of all things science continued with him through middle and high school in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. Gilmore, now a first year PhD graduate student, hopes one day to be called “Doctor” through IBIOE’s Call Me Doctor® fellowship program.
Gilmore took a drafting class in high school that sparked his love of engineering. After attending a summer engineering camp at North Carolina State University, he knew engineering was for him. Gilmore was recruited by several schools to play football, but chose The Citadel because of their strong engineering program. Gilmore started as a civil engineering major, but switched to electrical engineering when he realized he loved the idea of using computers to interface with the outside world.
