While digging around for the supporting paperwork for a passport application, I came across a blue folder with the name of the college (Pennsylvania College of Technology) I attended in the US. Somehow, even though it’s decades distant, I still have my undergraduate transcript and the B.Sc. certificate.

For posterity:

Computer Information Technology: Data Communications and Networking Concentration

I have no memory of ever doing assembler in CSC230, and goodness knows what CED1013 was about; actually, that might have been work experience, as I was doing part-time work at the college in the IT department while also getting my degree. The Java programming class was a bit of a farce, as the professor didn’t know the language they were teaching (or that’s how I remember it at least).

It’s sort of interesting to look back at my degree, and remember that while my major was data communications/networks, I did a lot of programming electives to ensure that I had a fall-back in case I couldn’t get a networking job. These days, I do programming to support the building of physical network infrastructure. Funny that.

And to think I almost ended up in Mankato.

Nostalgia, of sorts
