Creating software isn’t about just knowing the material. Rather, it’s about understanding how the building blocks of computer science form the basis for a variety of different applications.
I’ve found the University of Idaho’s emphasis on self-guided learning has prepared me for the myriad of problem-solving challenges that go along with software engineering.
As a part of my education at U of I, I have had the opportunity to intern at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratory in Pullman, Washington, and I love how seamlessly my internship experience has coalesced with my schooling. The real-world application of concepts taught in the classroom transforms vague ideas into concrete experiences for real life applications.
The drive to prove myself as a female engineer has definitely been a huge motivation for me to succeed as a student. The academic journey is full of tribulation, but it’s one’s triumphs that define them as a product of their dedication and application.
You have, literally, made education possible for me at U of I. The only reason I am attending school is because of a group of donors chose to extend their generosity in scholarship funds. Thank you!
Please continue your tradition of supporting students.
