Alumnus, Class of 2008

Why did you choose OIT?

After graduation I would like to work on weapons systems for the Department of Defense.

What do you like best about your major?

Some noteworthy projects I have worked on at OIT Portland include: the dice game in Digital Systems, Frequency counter for Microcontrollers, and Simulating AM (Amplitude Modulation) signals in MATLAB.

What would be your dream job in your major?

I like OIT Portland because it offers small class sizes so you can get the one-on-one help you need.

What’s your favorite thing to do off campus?

I also like designing, building, and testing the actual circuits we learned in class.

What’s your most memorable moment on campus?

To new students, get the most out of your education because you are paying for it. Make sure you have a Ti-89 calculator.
