Meet our students

Jeff Curley
B.S. Computer Science

"I remember being a student and thinking that the programming classes were the important part and the theory was...well, let's say less important. One of the first things I wrote out of college was a shortest path algorithm that used an adjacency matrix, and I remember thinking there was no way I would have arrived at this solution without having taken Discrete Math I and II."

Ashlee Warnke
B.S. Civil Engineering

"The faculty are eager to assist and guide students in their studies. They are excited about offering as many unique opportunites as they can in terms of teaching assistant positions — even for undergraduates — and independent studies."

Daniel Galarza
B.S. Computer Science

"In my first few months as a student, I attended SCE-hosted presentations by Cerner and Chelsoft Solutions, two major software companies in Kansas City. At the UMKC engineering career fair, I learned about many new software companies in the area, as well as larger corporations."

Teri Cline
M.S. Mechanical Engineering

"My graduate adviser was understanding of my full-time work schedule and worked with me so that I could successfully complete my degree in two years."

Howard Ehana
B.S. Electrical and Computer Engineering

"On the robotics team, we built a robot that navigated through an obstacle course and picked up and moved objects. The older team members helped us understand the basics. It's always exciting to go hang out in the robotics lab."
