Hala Assal, PhD/2018:
Graduation may have been the destination, but when asked to reflect on her doctoral studies at Carleton, Hala Assal says she’s most proud of the journey.
Sam Prashker, BCS/2016:
It wasn’t long after graduation in the spring of 2016 that Sam Prashker, a graduate of the School of Computer Science, packed his bags and headed to Japan. He spent the following month working as a Software Development Engineer for Microsoft’s Tokyo office. We caught up with Sam to find out more about what it was like working for Microsoft and what lead him to Tokyo.
Calvin Wiebe, BCS/2011:
Calvin Wiebe graduated from the School of Computer Science’s Software Engineering stream in 2011. He then began his career as a full stack engineer in Ottawa. We caught up with Calvin to find out more about his work now and asked him about his time with us at Carleton.
