Recent Alumni

Alex Maynard

Alex graduated from AUM in December 2020 with a Bachelor in Computer Science. He now works for the Department of Youth Services as a Programmer Analyst. 

Alex says AUM taught him three valuable lessons; the joys of discovering new things, the importance of punctuality and the value of persistence. He writes, “when I took my first programming class, I was astonished by how much I could do with programming. Before then, I didn’t fully understand what kind of effort went into writing software. As I progressed into more advanced classes over the years, I continued to discover more languages and more ways of writing applications. By the time I graduated, I had learned at least ten languages. Of course, learning these languages meant practicing via assignments, and assignments meant deadlines. 

Even when things would not go exactly as I planned, I could not allow myself to give up. I had to push through and find any resources I could to aid me with my academic career, whether it be tutors, professors, or tutorials on the internet. Had I given up on my degree, I most likely would not have found myself working as a programmer. I would not been as successful without the support of AUM and the Computer Science Department.”

Prasanna Sai graduated with a Master of Cyber Security in the summer of 2021.
