Alumni Testimonials:

Alex Vulaj '14
Software Engineer, Vnomics Corp. (Rochester, NY)

"The individualized care and personalized attention from my professors at Canisius elevated me from a student with absolutely no experience in the field to a young professional ready to enter the job market immediately upon graduation.  From professors with real-world experience willing to come in on weekends and spend long hours helping individual students, to the friendly atmosphere among students willing to go to incredible lengths to help each other, I strongly recommend a Canisius computer science education to anyone looking to get into the field."

Sebastian Marino '96
President and CEO, Uncorporeal Systems (New York, NY)
"Upon leaving the Computer Science Department at Canisius University I was inspired to work in the challenging field of computer graphics, underpinned by the confidence of a well-rounded education.  My work now includes seminal films such as Star Wars and Avatar, and along the way I've even received an Academy Award, yet my love for the field was born a long way from Hollywood, in Dr. McConnell's graphics class."

Raymond Georges '13
Developer - Web and Mobile Application Delivery, HealthNow New York Inc. (Buffalo, NY)
"As I recall my time spent at Canisius, the most prevalent memories are those of the dedicated professors who truly devoted their time and talents to making sure that my fellow classmates and I were prepared for the challenges that lay ahead. The combination of small class sizes, broad interdisciplinary specialization among the faculty, and a curriculum designed to teach not only the theory of Computer Science, but also the practice, culminated in a valuable education greater than the sum of its parts. So well spent was my time at Canisius, that I felt not only confident in my abilities upon first entering the workforce, but also better prepared than my peers who had graduated from larger, research based institutions. This instilled confidence, backed by a solid foundation built upon thorough knowledge of concepts, and a work ethic forged by professors who simply would not accept mediocrity from their students, is a large part of how I got to where I am today."
