Alumni Spotlight: Andrew Curran

January 14, 2019

Andrew Curran (Drew) graduated from MMFS in 2014 as a member of our first upper school graduating class. This year he will receive a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). Drew chose WPI because he felt it offered the best program and supports for students with learning disabilities. During his time at WPI, Drew has enjoyed many exciting accomplishments and opportunities. He designed a robot that was, at the time, the most biomedic robot on the market. He also worked for NASA, and for the Coast Guard, where he was published twice. Drew credits his MMFS education for teaching him self-advocacy skills, which he has used consistently to get the supports he needs to excel academically. Despite his ambitious schedule, Drew makes sure to find time to enjoy an active student life, as a member of both the WPI ski club and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He is currently fielding job offers. Looking forward, after working in the automotive industry designing engines, Drew plans to get his MBA from NYU.
