As a CS student at CCSU, I gained many competitive skills and valuable knowledge in software engineering, such as agile development, web development, etc. Throughout my years at CCSU, I gained a good theoretical background in Computer Science, especially in data structures and algorithms. During my senior year, I received many employment opportunities, and today I am a happy software developer at Optum.
