“Seneca gave me the hands-on opportunity to start my career in software engineering. After my first semester, I was able to find a part-time job working in the field off of the Seneca job board, and from there I had everything I needed to be successful. Without the hands-on application of how to code and organize projects, I wouldn't be where I am today.”

Zheng Wang

Second Laptop Winner

The School of Information Technology Administration & Security and School of Software Design & Data Science held a housewarming luncheon in early November 2019 to check in with students and see how they are adjusting to their new campus. Along with students, staff and faculty, we also invited some of the college service and introduced them to our students. With generous donations from Information Technology Services (ITS), we were able to give away door prizes at the event, including a laptop. Today, a second laptop was presented to Zheng Wang, a Computer Programming and Analysis student, who won the draw for completing the post-luncheon survey.
