Emma Barnett
Web Programming & Design (CGT)

What made you decide to choose your specific major?

I liked the idea of being able to create a better online experience for people when you interact with online platforms. I wanted to be able to design fun and functional websites and be able to bring them to life.

What are a couple of your favorite things about your program of study?

I like how much experience you get in so many different types of tech work. I’ve coded, designed, 3D modeled, created new products, and more.

What has been one of your favorite class projects?

I have two projects that stand out as favorites. One was an architecture design using Adobe Illustrator and the other was a UX Design project where we had to come up with a solution to make online learning easier.

What do you know about your program of study now that you wish someone had told you when you were choosing a major?

I don’t really have an answer because I was already a semester into my major when I decided to CODO. I put a lot of thought and research into making sure it was the right fit for me.

What would be one piece of advice for prospective students or new Purdue students?

Keep an eye out for majors you wouldn’t have given much thought. Sometimes the major that is perfect for you is something you had never heard of or thought about.
