Featured Student Artist

Jordan Susskind

Jordan Susskind


McCormick sophomore Jordan Susskind is an industrial engineer with a talent for graphite sketching. He has been an artist since he can remember, and now utilizes his creative vision to advance his engineering skills. Jordan defines whole-brain™ engineering as employing both sides of his brain to solve a problem, "whether it’s a math-oriented problem or an art-oriented problem. It’s being able to pull information and skills from both sides to reach a goal."
