Human Mediated Networking

 

"The interdisciplinary nature of the SURF-IT program helped me realize the broad scope of applications possible for computer science and information technology. I hadn’t thought about potential ways that computer skills could be put to use beyond the obvious paths of software or hardware engineering for computer systems. Furthermore, by actually using my skills to build solutions to interdisciplinary problems, I have been given an opportunity to develop them beyond those available in the classroom. I think that the opportunity to do research in a field I find interesting will be greatly rewarding and I will be looking more closely at graduate school."
