Besides learning general work ethic skills while going through the degree program, the hands-on lab and design projects in my computer engineering classes prepared me for all of the debugging, team communications, and problem solving skills that I have needed to succeed at IBM. In recognition of this, I was recently promoted to the level of Staff Engineer after less than two years on the job, and am currently working on a team that verifies the logic design for the most powerful IBM mainframe chip ever built. UAlbany gave me the tools to succeed, and from there it was about applying it to the real world problems at IBM.   Amber leads strategic foresight competency at Wolverine Worldwide.
