The professors were all excellent, and they are happy to spend
extra time with students that need it."

when I enrolled. The MCIT program has provided me with solid programming
principles for writing robust code in any language, and given
me a concrete understanding of computing concepts."

you taught us last semester, and then explained threads to him

program, since it has a significant undergrad 'makeup' component.

grounding and practical insights that we get from the program.
