The Department of Computer Graphics Technology prepared me by conducting hands-on courses where I would receive a key portfolio piece each semester. The department is also a major advocate for students to acquire jobs and internships – and an internship is what made me better qualified for my new position.

What are you job duties?

Maintain and update software related to corporate and investment banking.

Who would you like to thank as you finish your time at Purdue and start your career?

I would like to thank my fellow classmates and TAs for always remaining so encouraging as we tackled our course work and other challenges. I highly recommend making friends in your classes early on, it will only make your time here more enjoyable!

If you had a favorite class, project, experience, or professor, what/who was it, and why?

My favorite group project was designed in TECH 120 - Design Thinking. My group developed a theoretical machine that would roam freely in a designated area and pick up trash and other litter. While my team's project was not the best in the class, our team developed the ability to have an enjoyable time while solving challenging and complex problems. ​
