            GMU Undergraduate Engineering Program

            I had an incredible journey at GMU. Graduated in 1989 from the undergraduate Engineering program. I had opportunity to live on campus for a couple of years, made friends from all over the world and had some fantastic professors. Enjoyed my Computer programming & Engineering courses. Experienced some fantastic elective courses in Economics, History and English that added a different facet to my academics. I had the opportunity to work part-time on campus in the various computer labs (mainframe / mini / graphics) that exposed me to different hardware platforms and software suites. I specialized in Data communications in my senior year and many of my key courses thru the program were taught by visiting professors working the hi-tech field that it added a valuable dimension. Overall GMU prepared me for the hi-tech world and have not looked back since. I have visited Mason over the years and the growth in the campus is excellent. Fantastic journey!!
