Alumni Profiles

As an alumnus or alumna, you can help us ensure that we are doing our best to prepare future students for careers in engineering and computer science by telling us how your education at the Watson School influenced your career. Not only will the information you provide help us ensure that future students can follow in your footsteps to a career in their chosen discipline, but it will also provide information critical to our ABET accreditation process, which requires that we survey our alumni the first and third years after they graduate.

Please help us by completing the Alumni Survey Form. Your input is valuable for everything we do. And, if you have particular thoughts or comments that stand out, please share them with us by sending your comments to our department at svankure@binghamton.edu.

Jason Gibbs

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering, Binghamton University, 2003
Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Binghamton University, 2003

"I attended Binghamton University from 1999 to 2004. I had the privilege of being one of the first two students in the ECE department's 3/2 combined BS/MS program. The other student to graduate with me during the first year of the 3/2 program was my good friend Steven Seiden. We both decided to focus on signal processing, so we had many of the same classes, as well as a common senior design project. Along with a great education at Binghamton, I also made some lasting friendships. I met my fiancée, Danielle Stoll, in Calculus II. The best-man in our wedding, fellow engineering student Tim Brown, was my roommate/housemate for the first four years I was in Binghamton..." (Read More)

Lauren Huiehuie, alumni

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering, Penn State University
Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Binghamton University, 2005

"I attended Binghamton University from 2001 to 2005 where I received a BS in Electrical Engineering from the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science. During my years at Binghamton, I was very active in the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). I organized a number of projects including a recruiting workshop and a freshman book scholarship program. To compliment my undergraduate studies, I interned at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility and Sensis Corporation during the summers of 2004 and 2005..." (Read More)

Jamie Marie

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering, Duke University, 2005
Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Binghamton University, 2003

"During my undergraduate experience at Binghamton University, I explored many possible careers. As a peer adviser for the Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science, I developed a relationship with many faculty and staff members and learned the Degree Auditing and Reporting System (DARS) inside and out, advising students on their options, and even revising the DARS system when the curriculum was updated. I also assisted a local patent law firm and learned about intellectual property and the qualifications necessary to patent an invention/procedure..." (Read More)

James Metzler

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering, Binghamton University, 2005
Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Binghamton University, 2004

"James Metzler graduated from Binghamton University with a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering in 2004, and the next year earned a master's degree in the same field with a Control Systems focus as part of the ECE Department's 3/2 program. The summer of 2005 was spent as an intern at the Air Force Research Laboratory, Information Directorate, in Rome, N.Y. Victor Skormin, distinguished professor of electrical engineering, was instrumental in creating this opportunity and it resulted in a research program that continued into Metzler's graduate year..."

Pratap Muthana

Substrate Design Group, Nvidia
Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
Master of Science in Electrical Engineering, Binghamton University, 2002

"I arrived in Binghamton from India in fall 2000 to pursue a master's degree in the ECE department. The first thing that struck me when I arrived at Binghamton University was the courses choices we had available on a semester basis. The courses offered ranged from communication, controls, DSP, packaging and VLSI, to name a few. I was given a teaching assistantship (TA) at Binghamton in the Analog Devices Course during my first semester and for the communication and control lab during my second semester. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working in a classroom with 50 students going over difficulties they had, grading homework and tests and posting solutions..." (Read More)
