BS in Computer Science and Engineering
What have you been doing since you left Bucknell?
I live in Suzhou, in China, which is one of the largest manufacturers of laptop computers. If you can think of a computer company, they probably have an office here. Right now I'm working at an IT outsourcing company, where I'm a project manager for the Business Process Outsourcing department. Things are going well in China and there many opportunities for Computer Scientists here.
Why did you choose to study at Bucknell?
When I came to campus, I felt comfortable. After speaking with other students and professors, I knew that I would feel at home.
What did you most like about Bucknell?
I tried to think of an answer to this question, but it is too difficult. I can't pin my love for Bucknell down to one thing, there are just too many things to like about it.
How did the education you received at Bucknell prepare you for your current job?
Because Bucknell is a liberal arts university, I was prepared to handle many different jobs and gained a variety of skills. That's a good thing, because although I work with a software company in China, I am not doing any software design at all. Those classes in writing, economics, and Chinese really helped out.How did you select your degree program?
I chose Computer Science and Engineering because I liked the idea of tinkering with electronics and getting a strong background in science.
