Student Profile: Ye Lynn Ngwe

Computer Engineering Technology

What did you enjoy most about your program?

I really enjoyed the small classroom experience and how every professor gets to know you because of it. You get more attention that way.

What was your most memorable college experience?

It was a great overall experience, but I have to say I love the time when the students I tutored told me they got a 98, or an 'A' after having a tutoring appointment with me.

What is the most important thing you learned at Wentworth - what's your biggest takeaway?

Being organized - it really helps you out. Things are easier that way to achieve and succeed.

What was your co-op?

My co-op was at the MBTA at a Blue Line maintenance facility. I was intimidated at first since it was my first co-op. When I started working as an engineering intern, I had to help the Blue Line chief engineer with his everyday task. I helped out with the firmware in the cars, assisted them in using new electronics equipment, and prepared office documents (manuals, forms, etc).

What are your future plans?

I will work in the fields of computer manufacturing, telecommunications, and information technology, and I will go back to graduate school in a year. Finally, I want to go back to Burma and improve its IT development. I really want to own my ISP/ phone company at some point in the future.

What's your reaction to graduating from college?

Excited (to start working).

Additional thoughts...

College is not tough if you do what you are supposed to do in a timely manner. Be organized, go to classes regularly, and do the work to meet the due dates. I had a wonderful time, and college helped me mature and improve many skills I had potential for.
