Class of 2011
Danny Lachhman (BSD '11)
Danny is a technology consultant pursuing an MBA at McMaster University’s DeGroote School of Business. After he receives his MBA, Danny plans on pursuing a career where he can use his technical and business knowledge or start a technology-oriented company.
When Danny applied to Seneca in 2007, he was very unsure of his career goals. He had no programming skills, some interpersonal skills, some work experience and average Windows OS experience. Today, he has experience with the programming languages: C, C++, Objective-C, C#, Java, Perl and PHP. All of this is possible because of Seneca College and the BSD program. As Danny puts it, “My education is their creation.”
Most of Danny’s gratitude toward Seneca's faculty and the College as a whole comes from the fact that he has been put on a level playing field with graduates from multiple disciplines and a wide array of postsecondary institutions.
Ji-Won Park (CNS '11)
Ji-Won refers to Seneca as his life saver! He was an international student who finished the CNS program in 2011. He was fortunate enough to get in to the co-op program which opened the door for his career path. Ji-Won has been working as a consultant for the last few years and truly enjoys his work and the lifestyle he has - great flexibility with high pressure when something needs to be delivered.
He works with large clients including government, hospitals, hotels and resorts, and retail to name a few. He is looking to Seneca again to continue his education in the IFS program which will boost his career in the Security field.
