The skills learned while earning my degree helped me become more well-rounded in my profession with extensive hands-on experience. Professors teaching cutting-edge technologies and languages placed my skill set among the top in my area. Skills and knowledge that, years later, is still bearing fruit. Beyond graduation, the faculty and I continue to have a relationship where we discuss new ideas and technologies.
