You get to be with people that inspire hard work, intelligence, and humility. Getting to learn the science behind modern technology. Understanding.

Joshua Partlow (CPE 2005)

The flexibility. I can't think of another major that allows students to pursue so many different paths. The knowledge of the professors. While not every professor is a great teacher, I've yet to encounter one that didn't know the material they were teaching inside out. I also haven't had a single professor who wasn't willing to work with me outside of class until I understood a topic. The opportunities available through the department. I can't remember a day when I got home and didn't have at least three emails making me aware of a program the department was putting on, or a career opportunity.

Penn Markham (CPE 2006)
