James Cooke joined the Engineering Division in July 2013. He received his B.S. in history from JBU in 2011 and went on to receive his M.A. in history from Queen’s University Belfast in 2012. Though he’s spent a lot of time around the liberal arts, he grew up around engineers and architects. His father is a licensed architect, and James worked for him as an assistant draftsman working on construction drawings. He has also enjoys learning how things work, and has been known to disassemble electronics, appliances, and small engines to see how they work. His brother is currently studying civil engineering, and James also roomed with an engineer and a construction management major while he attended JBU. Those relationships and interests encouraged him to pursue his current position as an Admissions Counselor for prospective Engineering, Construction Management, and Renewable Energy majors. He enjoys being a part of connecting prospective students to the professional degrees available in the division. James is originally from Arizona and is excited to be back at JBU and a part of the work God is doing through JBU.
