I greatly enjoyed the four years I spent at Keene State. I spent a lot of time in the Computer Science Building and in the CS Lab with friends and professors.  The staff/faculty were very nice and knowledgeable.  I wish I had asked more questions on many topics after experiencing the working computer science world.

Some of my favorite courses were:

  • Database Systems
  • Game Programming
  • Software Engineering Project
  • UNIX Systems
  • Mobile Application Development

I currently work for a small company in Connecticut where I develop eCommerce websites which handle large datasets that are also high traffic.  I also develop mobile applications for devices running iOS and Android operating systems.

The KSC Computer Science department has had an enormous impact on my career. The faculty are incredibly encouraging, and apply just the right amount of pressure. At KSC I had the opportunity to work on fun, engaging, and fruitful research projects, community-oriented service learning projects, and interesting course assignments. This diverse curriculum spanning artificial intelligence, software engineering, and network security has prepared me well for both theoretical graduate studies and applied industrial work. Passion is the most important characteristic of an enjoyable career, and the KSC CS faculty recognize and expound this in their teaching.
