Class of 2020 Highlights: Electrical Engineering Student Chris Cassidy
July 23, 2020
We’re speaking with Class of 2020 students as they prepare to graduate. Our next installment is with Chris Cassidy, an Electrical Engineering student and member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
What are you most proud of during your time at WIT?
I'm most proud of what I've achieved, from friends made, to grades and my co-op experiences [with iRobot and Analog Devices]. It's all blurred together over the last four years to feel like a single, monumental achievement.
What project or class especially stands out for you?
In the course Micro Controllers with C, the final project was to code a video game start to finish. The first couple of years of my degree were about laying groundwork for the advanced topics we would be learning later on. This project stands out to me as one of the first times I got to participate in a full-length project that resulted in a product I could be proud of.
What advice you would give to first-year students about to start their respective programs?
Don't fret too hard about your first year. College is a big adjustment, and it's going to take time.
